Bug Description

I cant fix broken packages, install softwares, clean system of obsolete files, cant update syetem,etc...not even from the command line interface in terminal. Everytime I get the following error message :

 error processing crossplatformui (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:
 crossplatform

The screenshot of error codes that I had got once trying to fix a broken package is as follows :

Setting up crossplatformui (2.1.2) ...
Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service acpid restart

Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an
Upstart job, you may also use the stop(8) and then start(8) utilities,
e.g. stop acpid ; start acpid. The restart(8) utility is also available.

If you want faster help you should bring this up over at the Mint Forum.

The bug tracking process is considerably slower than the support at the forum.
