Ran apt-get update afterwards without problem so I'm not sure if this is a problem or not, Samba works fine if that is anything to do with it..

Bug Description

I was doing an Update using the manager GUI and at the same time using Gnome Commander to try and find a directory on the file system. Both dialogues went dark and I had to kill them by right clicking on their icon on the task bar. I then opened a terminal and ran apt-get update and apt-get install and both ran without complaint so I figured I didn't have a problem. The error popped up the following day when I restarted the computer and was greeted with the bug report request.

Sorry for the delay in responding, I've been away.

dpkg-reconfigure failed because it could not find
ttf-mscorefonts-installer so I downloaded the exe but I don't have wine
on that machine so it is not recognised as an extractable archive by the
archive manager. I transferred the exe to a windows machine and
confirmed that it was not corrupted. apt-get does not recognise
ttf-mscorefonts-installer as a valid package so I'll need some pointers
on how to get it.

I'm not sure why msfonts would be needed on a machine not running wine.
I do have wine on two other Ubuntu machines on a different network but
not the one producing this error.

The update manager has been continually failing so I've done an -update
followed by -upgrade via the terminal

Cheers
Kim

at home, are running different versions of Ubuntu - 12.04 and 14.04.
Both machines are currently updating and working fine through software

Update

I downloaded the 11 zip files from Sourceforge and tried to re-run
dpgk-reconfigure. Despite several attempts with different paths It
claimed that it could not find the files. I opened Wine and was able to
install all 11 fonts but not surprisingly the info did not cross over to
Ubuntu so when I started the machine the next day I got a message
telling me that ttf-mscorefonts-installer had had trouble installing.

Everything appears to be working fine so I'm not sure how much of a
problem this really is but I'm open to suggestions about what to do next.

Cheers
Kim
