Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. It looks like you had a custom (not from an Ubuntu package) install of python-dictclient which dpkg is respecting and not installing over. Please try removing your previous install of it and reinstalling the package. Thanks in advance.

Changed in dictclient (Ubuntu):
status: New → Incomplete

Thank you for taking the time to help me.

uninstalling and installing the package worked great.

I did get this:

but dictclient is now up and running.

Thanks,

Aviad
