A while ago, while updating my Debian testing system, I got the
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] Setting up apt-listchanges (3.10) ...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/tmp/tmp.kqhvU8IqOr.aptlc/debconf-helper.py", line 6, in <module>
ImportError: No module named 'debconf'
dpkg: error processing package apt-listchanges (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
This error has persisted ever since. I am starting to have several
strange things happen to my system - unable to move windows with mounse
and unable to cut an paste from the monitor - that may or may not be
caused by this error. I am not sure what the effect of the error would
be nor do I know how to fix it. I found a bug report that was similar
but none of the suggested fixes fixed this one.
Note: There is no tmp.kqhvU8IqOr.aptlc/debconf-helper.py file on my
system. Debconf is definitely installed.
Any help will be sincerely appreciated.
