Hi,

 Umm, it was caused by failure with executing update-alternatives.

 ttf-takao just called it, however something wrong with perl-base ( /usr/lib/perl/*/auto/POSIX/POSIX.so ).

update-alternatives belongs to dpkg package, so once reassign to dpkg package.

affects: ttf-takao (Ubuntu) → dpkg (Ubuntu)

This is the sign of a broken perl, not of a broken update-alternatives.

Changed in perl (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed
