I can't seem to get libc6 to install. I keep getting this error:
Unpacking libc6 (from .../libc6_2.3.2.ds1-11_amd64.deb) ...
dpkg not recorded as installed, cannot check for epoch support !
dpkg: error processing
subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 1
I've have tried to reinstall dpkg (which actually is on the machine),
but it gives me an error saying it predepends on libc6 :-(
Any tips to getting rid of this obstacle?
Unpack libc6, unpack dpkg, unpack mawk.
Install mawk with --force-depends, install libc6 with --force-depends,
install dpkg, install mawk, install libc6.
Or something along those lines.
Thanks, that did the trick - those --force options are nice too know :-)
dpkg -i --force-depends mawk
dpkg -i --force-depends dpkg
dpkg -i --force-depends libc6
