I tried today to do a d-u. I always first run
      Code:
 apt-get update
      Code:
 apt-get dist-upgrade -s
to see what will be done. Here's what I get today:

      Code:

# apt-get dist-upgrade -s

How do I correct this so that e2fsprogs_1.41.12-4stable1_i386.deb is installed?

First, in the order in which I did things today, the output for 'apt-get update' :

      Code:

# apt-get update

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.



When I then tried to install the latest kernel 2.6.39-2.slh.2-aptosid-686, I get this output:

I would try to make "apt-get update" to run without any errors. Maybe you are missing some important packages because the updated package list could not be downloaded?

Do you have enough disk space left?

Thanks for your help, tips and advice fellow Aptosid users! At the moment, I'm using my MEPIS 11 computer so I can't check on the things you suggest. I do have to check how much disk space remains but I did switch to another mirror the other day. I picked the MIT mirror (in the US) but the same problem about e2fsprogs was reported to me by apt-get dist-upgrade. A short while ago I found in the MEPIS forum, a discussion of the very same problem I'm having with e2fsprogs. I'll have to try the tips offered in the MEPIS forum.

In this MEPIS forum, on this same problem, there was mention of an e2fsprogs bug report but sadly no solution yet. The bug report ("Bug#631808: Package fails to upgrade; unable to create `/usr/share/locale/tr/LC_MESSAGES/e2fsprogs.mo.dpkg-new' ") is here: http://bit.ly/jeaX2X And the MEPIS discussion on this very same problem is here: http://bit.ly/lguszg

[Incidentally, my Aptosid system is a 32 bit one but the MEPIS discussion concerns a 64 bit system. It's clear that this problem happens in both bit systems.]

Upon reading the bug report, do you have localepurge installed and configured? If so, remove it as it apparently causes issues with packages that have localizations included.

I don't have any package named localepurge installed.

In reading the MEPIS forum discussion (see http://bit.ly/lguszg ) of this very same problem, I decided, according to advice in the MEPIS forum, to create:

/usr/share/locale/tr/LC_MESSAGES/

Then, in konsole, ran apt-get update, and tried to do

      Code:

apt-get dist-upgrade -s


But the same problem occurred, the one about e2fsprogs:

      Code:

# apt-get dist-upgrade -s
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 e2fsprogs : PreDepends: e2fslibs (= 1.41.12-4) but 1.41.12-4stable1 is installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.


When I run

      Code:

apt-get -f install


I get the warning that

      Code:

# apt-get -f install

Reading state information... Done

In the MEPIS discussion of this (see http://bit.ly/lguszg ), a very experienced MEPIS user wonders what will happen "if you downloaded both the problem deb packages and installed them with "dpkg -i" as root?

http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/e2fsprogs
http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/e2fslibs

dpkg also has some force-install options that will install the packages despite errors, though that can be dangerous."


Do you think I should try the above or is it too dangerous?

Too find the solution, you need to know the cause of problem.
Without knowing the solution, blindly trying various "solutions" are dangerous.

About the "cause", now e2fsprogs and e2fslibs both have version 1.41.12-4stable1 on sid.
So you need to find out why the dependencies to 1.41.12-4 holds on your system.

You could try
      Code:
apt-get -duV -o Debug::pkgProblemResolver=yes dist-upgrade

or
      Code:
apt-get -duV -o Debug::pkgProblemResolver=yes install e2fsprogs e2fslibs

to check out which dependencies are the problem. The "-d" switch tells apt-get to just download the packages, so nothing will be changed, even if you press "y".

Other bad news: Yesterday I did what MEPIS expert kmathern said to do in the MEPIS forum discussion of this very same problem--> http://bit.ly/lguszg I ran as root:

      Code:

mkdir -p /usr/share/locale/tr/LC_MESSAGES


and now Firestarter doesn't even start! I suppose I can just delete /usr/share/locale/tr/LC_MESSAGES which I created yesterday and then see if Firestarter works again. [I haven't done that yet though.]

Today I ran

      Code:

# apt-get remove firestarter


and then

      Code:

# apt-get purge firestarter


and neither would remove firestarter. So I can't download and re-install firestarter for some odd reason.

Two days ago I downloaded the latest version of Aptosid (32 bit). Since it might be difficult to figure out what exactly is wrong in my current system, I wonder if I just should save what I want in my current system, clean my HDD, set up partitions and install the latest Aptosid.

Edit: I rebooted my computer and firestarter now starts and runs. This same querky behavior of firestarter not running would happen rarely in the past. Never figured out why but I was happy to discover that reboots usually fixed the "problem" with firestarter.

I had the same problem on a 64-bit system, but the update went through without error on a VM 64-bit system. The original error message referred to a different locale folder than the one starting this string -- /usr/share/locale/ca/LC_MESSAGES/e2fsprogs.mo.dpkg-new rather than /usr/share/locale/nl/LC_MESSAGES/e2fsprogs.mo.dpkg-new -- which, of course, was missing. I found that if I copied the missing folder from the VM machine into the /usr/share/locale folder on the machine where it was missing (as root) and then issued "apt-get -f install", I received a new error message, this time referring to another missing folder. Copying each folder referred to in an error message from the VM machine and working my way through successive error messages in this way, I was eventually able to complete the d-u with an "apt-get -f install" command.

On the problem machine, the missing folders looked like a list of default locales; the list included ca, cs, de, fr, id, it, nl, pl, sv, tr, vi, zh, and zh_CN. There's probably a more elegant solution to this problem. I don't know enough to figure that out.

So far as I can recall, I never had localepurge installed on the machine with the problem. The only relevant difference between the machines that I can now remember is that I ran dpkg-reconfigure on the problem machine, removing all locales except en_US, but not the VM machine.

If you want to do a reinstall anyway, you could try what happens if you purge e2fsprogs and then try to reinstall it. If this does not work and your system is broken, you still can do a fresh installation.

Oh, btw. what does "apt-cache policy e2fsprogs e2fslibs" tell you?

After changing my debian mirror from the one at MIT (in the US) to the one at uchicago.edu (in the US) and running apt-get update, here arwa is the output:
