How to fix apt-get in Ubuntu 8.10

2 Dec, 2008 - 1 minutes
If somehow you have broken the APT package handling utility and you get this error: ed@niobe:~$ sudo apt-get install xchat E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. Then when you runĀ ‘dpkg –configure -a’ you get this error: Processing triggers for libc6 ... ldconfig deferred processing now taking place dpkg: ../../src/packages.c:221: process_queue: Assertion `dependtry <= 4' failed. Aborted This is how I fixed it.
