Aptitude 0.6.5: log report
Thu, Mar 22 2012 00:02:20 -0400
Be warned...libpcre3 8.30-1 makes for an un-runnable system, at
did here. I solved it by downgrading to 8.12-4 again which
libpcre.so.3. Apparently the new version doesn't.
I hit the same problem on an upgrade this morning. I solved it by
manually downloading the 8.12-4 deb from the archives (I went to
the libpcre3 package page, went to download the latest version but
where the list of ftp mirrors appears I copied the link address
into my browser. I then backspaced to remove the package name and
get a directory listing so I was then able to find the older
I downloaded it and installed with dpkg -i.
I then went into aptitude and found the package there and put a
hold on that version. I was then able to get aptitude to properly
re-install desktop-utils (which meant for instance that until that
point I was unable to run nautilus).
