Broken package stopping upgrades
I have my apt configured to use testing. I tried to upgrade a few
packages which caused libc6 to be upgraded, and in the process it tried
to install libdb1-compat.
libdb1-compat errored out in the install, and now I can't upgrade at all
because it errors on the removal too!
Everytime I try to upgrade anything the following is what I get. I've
tried apt-get -f install to fix the broken package, but this doesn't
Can someone tell me how to get back to a working scenario???
$ sudo apt-get -f install
