Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub2

I think that I already tried to report a bug with the package linux-image-2.6.31-21-generic 2.6.31-21.59 that failed to install with the following error message within update manager:

E: linux-image-2.6.31-21-generic: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
E: linux-image-2.6.31-22-generic: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
E: linux-image-generic: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
E: linux-generic: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

.. as you can see, it also failed with a newer image (2.6.31-22).

I suppose that the packages which failed to install are still somewhere in the system. Should I remove them and start again with updating? Where those packages reside?

I am new with Ubuntu and do not know where the downloaded packages for updates reside on the system. I suppose that the best way would be trying to remove them and downloaded them again. O, is it a better solution?

To fix the problem on your system, I recommend:

  sudo chmod -x /etc/grub.d/README
