I've had to restore one of my systems from cold iron. Aptitude seems to be hanging up when trying to install / purge / update doc-base. I've tried Aptitude, dpkg and apt-get including the -f switch with no joy. Below is a typical example:
root@mycomputer:/home/gary# aptitude purge doc-baseI have tried cleaning and reloading the archives. That didn't help. The whole dpkg process seems to be hung up at this point. If I try to process any other packages, the installation process always returns to some variation of the above. The package seems to be partially installed. The C flag is set in aptitude. A not configured error is sometime displayed. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
