Debian Configuration :: Error: "dpkg: Failed To Write Status Database"

Jun 8, 2011

during an "apt-get install" the filesystem of a virtual machine filled up and so it failed. I have now increased the file-system size but running the same "apt-get install" again results in this error: "E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem." However when I try to run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' I get this error: "dpkg: failed to write status database record about 'libxmuu1' to '/var/lob/dpkg/status': No space left on device" How can I recover from this situation?

Debian Configuration :: Update Manager/dpkg Stalls

Jun 26, 2011

I have used Debian on this computer for over a year now. A little while back update manager stopped working. It now prompts me to update a varying number of packages (85-97), but when I try and run it I get this message:

E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

I'm not sure where to report this. I'm the only user of this computer. I tried running dpkg as directed, but that results in the following:

shop-amd-rebuild:/home/steve# dpkg --configure -a
Setting up linux-image-2.6.26-2-amd64 (2.6.26-26lenny1) ...
Running depmod.
Running mkinitramfs-kpkg.


I'd sure like to update, and not reinstall.

Debian Configuration :: Dpkg Report No Space Left On /usr With >1GiB Free

Jul 1, 2011

Command "sudo aptitude install oxygen-icon-theme" return following error:

dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/oxygen-icon-theme_4%3a4.6.2-2_all.deb (--unpack):
unable to install new version of `/usr/share/icons/oxygen/22x22/apps/preferences-desktop-default-applications.png': No space left on device


As far as I can see oxygen-icon-theme unpacks only in /usr/share, beyond it I can think of only /tmp, /var or /var/tmp that it may use, all of which have plenty more than those ~40 MiB that it supposed to occupy unpacked. All btrfs filesystems were formatted with "-d single -m single". System is Debian Sid 64-bit with linux-image-3.0.0-rc5-amd64.

why dpkg may have trouble unpacking this package?

Ubuntu Installation :: E:Unable To Parse Package File /var/lib/dpkg/status (1)

Mar 31, 2010

I'm running ubuntu 9.04 and was happy because I finally got the screen resolution to be a good size, but now I can't update anything or even upgrade ubuntu.The message I get is


Could Not Initialize Package Information

An unresolvable problem occured while initializing the package information.Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

'E:Unable to parse package file /var/lib/dpkg/status (1), E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'

I've also had issues with installing new programs (specifically tried Boxee (64bit ver) and Scrobbler), but was thinking these issues might be related to the updage-manager error.

Debian Installation :: Duplicating A System And Dpkg Error

Apr 29, 2012

I am downgrading one of my Sid boxes to Testing. I've finished the install and now duplicating the system for installed packages.

Before I started, to get a list of installed packages
Code: Select allsudo dpkg --get-selections > package.txt

Now when I try to duplicate the installed packages
Code: Select all sudo dpkg --set-selections < package.txt

I receive over 1000 lines with the message:
Code: Select alldpkg: warning: package not in database at line wxyz

I did try
Code: Select all dpkg --configure -a
without any effect.

Is this just a diffence between the Sid package database and the Testing database?

General :: Install Debian On A AMD K6-2 - Dpkg Error Code 1

Aug 16, 2010

I was triyng to install Debian on a AMD K6-2. I use debootstrap, and installed Lenny, with a kernel linux-image-2.6.26-2-486.

After that apt-get update and apt-get upgrade and I get:

The following packages will be upgraded:

Since release 150, udev requires that support for the CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED feature is disabled in the running kernel.

Please upgrade your kernel before or while upgrading udev.

AT YOUR OWN RISK, you can force the installation of this version of udev WHICH DOES NOT WORK WITH YOUR RUNNING KERNEL AND WILL BREAK YOUR SYSTEM AT THE NEXT REBOOT by creating the /etc/udev/kernel-upgrade file. There is always a safer way to upgrade, do not try this unless you 0understand what you are doing!

And similar messages appears trying to install xfce4...

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Interrupted - Unable To Access DPKG Status Area

Jan 6, 2010

I was in the process of upgrading my ubuntu system (probably the latest version, it was about a month ago) and my computer froze (it does that on occasion). I have looked around this site, and tried a few things. I assume I am supposed to use the command "sudo dpkg --configure -a" to fix it. The problem is that when I do that, I get the message "dpkg: unable to access dpkg status area: read-only file system". So, what do I do now? I definitely dont want to mess up my system, but I want to fix it.
