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: error processing
/var/cache/apt/archives/libc6_2.3.2.ds1-11_amd64.deb (--unpack):
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
