My impossible problem of removing/reinstalling Mediatomb
« on: June 18, 2017, 11:10:41 am »
Hi!

So what happened was that I broke my mediatomb package.

I have pretty much tried everything i could find online, I only go around in circles now.
Do I have to reinstall my whole distro ALL over again to fix this?

Command: sudo apt-get -f install
result:fault with:
mediatomb-daemon
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq mediatomb-deamon
result: dpkg: warning: ignoring request to remove mediatomb-deamon which isn't installed

But it is mediatomb-deamon that is broken. All files are deleted now.. and well. This sucks.  :'(

Thanks for help!

Did you mean to type "daemon"?

Does it work when you run the command with the correct spelling?

So what is returned if you run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge mediatomb-daemon
exactly like that (ie. with the correct spelling of daemon) ?
