I got some problem while my notebook-installation.
I got an error concerning the failure of deleting a essential parcel "e2fsprogs". While the installation apt told me that this parcel has to be deleted. But when I confirm this I got this dump: E: Internal Error, Could not early remove e2fsprogs....
apt told me to set the APT::Force-LoopBreak-parameter.
I tied this:  apt-config -o APT::Force-LoopBreak=true
or this:       apt-config -o APT::Force-LoopBreak="true"
or this:       apt-config -o APT::Force-LoopBreak="1"
.... and so on....
Nothing worked.

I feel your pain. I've had this happen a few times, and it took me forever to figure out hte correct syntax. Unfortunately, I have not documented it ... wait, wait, yes, apparently I have ... (thanks, Google!):


In both cases, I was able to get around the problem by creating the file
"/etc/apt/apt.conf" and putting in it the line:

APT::Force-LoopBreak "true";

After doing my upgrade, I remove/rename that file to avoid potential
issues in the future.
