System crashes while installing openoffice.org mailmerge
First of all, this does not only happen on my computer. I set up a Ubuntu Studio 9.04 system for testing in a virtual machine before installing on a friend's computer. Both of us encounter the same problem on both computers. My computer carries the newest updates while he uses the 9.04 standard edition.
We tried installing OpenOffice.org 3.0 using the standard package manager. It always stops at the following line:
Adding extension /usr/lib/
This takes the whole system down, and we have to do a hard reboot. After restarting we cannot install any upgrades or new packages before continuing the old installation. If we run, as proposed by the updater:
dpkg --configure -a
Please tell me which further information you need to resolve this issue.
