Bug Description

Encountered an issue while updating from 13.10 to 14.04 : the upgrade encountered an error, stated the system could be unusable. Every time I tried to use sudo afterwards, it resulted in a "segmentation fault (core dumped" error.

I removed samba (and a lot of other, important looking, packages) via synaptic, and now sudo works again.

Ok, it seems to be a known bug. When trying to reinstall samba-libs, the log states :
secrets.tdb exists in /var/lib/samba and /var/lib/samba/private, aborting samba-libs preinst
rename one of them to allow the install/upgrade to continue

Renaming the file and reinstalling seems to work.
