dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/xlibs_4.0.2-1_i386.deb (--unpack):

dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I have no idea how to begin to debug this. I did notice a previous poster on this

/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults) did not work for me.
