These logs only seem to date up until 19th October, though I have removed python-debtagshw today in the hope that I could reinstall it but that too failed

I have run:

sudo apt-get build-dep software-center python-debtagshw

and downloaded the source package to see if I could install it manually but have failed thus far.

The package uses `autoconf` and then `make` but I can't seem to get a satisfactory result. Then ran `sudo make install `:

I will restart the computer to see if this takes effect
