Re: HELP: apt = E: Internal Error, Could not perform immediate configuraton ...



Same thing happened here.  apt quit because some script broke (which is
semi-normal).  I fixed the problem, but then apt-get -y -f
dselect-upgrade, which always used to work, gives that precise error.  The
package that broke was yiff-server, if that matters (probably doesn't).

Anyone?
