Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

During upgrade from the beta-version of Kubuntu 7.10 I received an error-window with the title: "could not install 'acpid'".
In the window this error is shown: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

When clicking on "close" I get another window "could not install acpi-support with as details: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
For "powermanagement-interface", i get the same error when I click close on the previous window
then "kubuntu-desktop"

I got the same problem running the Ubuntu Hardy Release Candidate 64bit live CD, with the following in my message dialogue:
    E: acpid: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    E: ubuntu-desktop: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

Also attached the Synaptic log file in case it's any use.

What is the impact of this problem?

veggietarier, /var/log/dist-upgrade/term.log would be helpful, in case it's still an issue and the file has not been overwritten, to see the post-installation script error.

The acpi problem exists in 8.04 (32 bit Intel, EXT3 file system), clean install.

When trying to recover from a locked-up system update installation by running dpkg --configure -a
I received:
dpkg: error processing acpid (--configure)
  unable to flush updated status of `acpid': Read-only file system
dpkg: ../../src/packages.c:252: process_queue: Assertion `!queuelen' failed.
Aborted

Most puzzling is the setup message: Setting up acpid (1.0.4-5ubuntu9.3)

It was the ACPI update that locked up the system updater.

Is this an appropriate update for ubuntu 8.04?

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue for you. Can you try with the latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.

Still running Jaunty 32 bit, but no problems on this release.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue that you reported should be reproducible with the live environment of the Desktop CD development release - Maverick Meerkat. It would help us greatly if you could test with it so we can work on getting it fixed in the next release of Ubuntu. You can find out more about the development release at http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/. Thanks again and we appreciate your help.
