Bug Description

I was installing the new kernel and I was following instructions from this page:
I installed the first two packages without any problem but when I was installing the last package, the Software Center give me that error:

"An unhandlable error occured

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. Please report this error at and retry."

then I tried sudo update-grub and thats the output:

/etc/default/grub: 33: Syntax error: EOF in backquote substitution

I found the fix for this bug by this codes:

sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-image-2.6.37-020637-generic.postrm
sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-image-2.6.37-020637-generic.list

my problem was with "linux-image-2.6.37-020637-generic" you can replace it with your package. then:

sudo apt-get clean all
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

I ran sudo apt-get update twice.

Then I run synaptic and manually remove the package and my system is clean again. Many thanks to this blog:
