Sorry if this has been answered recently, I lost my /var/spool file a few
I have been having some problems with dpkg-ftp. My current version is
listed as 1.3.1 and no revision number. When I go to 'update' it complains
that it can't get Packages.gz. I rewrote the script to get "Packages"
instead and disabled the gunzip. Now it can get the file.
When I do an install, however, it gives me an error:
Calculating packages to get...
binary/./ms-dos/base/../../binary/base/adduser-1.94-3.deb: binary operator
want package: adduser-1.94-3.deb
dirname: too many arguments
Try 'dirname --help' for more information.
mkdir: too few arguments
Try 'mkdir --help' for more information.
Is there a patch for this? Am I using an old version? I don't understand
bash well enough to see what is going wrong.
I am using ftp.microworld.net and /debian/stable/binary.
I also have tried using /debian. I can't seem to get around the above
error. Any ideas?
