This error has persisted ever since. I am starting to have several
strange things happen to my system - unable to move windows with mounse

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.
Thanks for the replys.
I seem to have an Anaconda problem.
python --version gave Python 3.5.2 :: Anaconda custom (64-bit)
python -m debconf gave /root/anaconda3/bin/python: No module named debconf
dpkg -V debconf gave nothing
/usr/lib/python3/sidt-packages/debconf.py does exist.
I've been doing a lot of work with anaconda python lately. Not sure how
to shut this off.
