Bug Description

There seems to be a programming error in aptdaemon, the software that allows you to install/remove software and to perform other package management related tasks.

I can't update my system or software by using Update Manager

I got the same message.

The file I was downloading from Ubuntu Software Center is: Google-chrome-stable version 6.0.472.63-r59945

Installing it to Ubuntu (64bit) 1010

Details:

I see the same problem. It happened after I rebooted following a system update (during which I'm sure I saw some apt packages being updated). I'm running 10.10 on Oracle VM VirtualBox version 3.2.8 r64453

The traceback I get is:

Traceback (most recent call last):

    pm.get_archives(fetcher, self._list, self._records)
SystemError: E:I wasn't able to locate file for the ttf-lyx package. This might mean you need to manually fix this package.

Reboots do not fix this problem

I've been unable to re-create this on my machine.
At the time I was running the update manager and the Ubuntu software centre, both just using Ubuntu repositories over the internet.
