Update manager crashes/hangs on error

update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I was attempting to install printer drivers from Brother. These drivers would not install.

Now, every time I open the Update Manager (Ubuntu 7.10) I get the following:

Could not initialize the package information

An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

'E:The package hl1430lpr needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.'

.
Not sure what's wrong

is this still an issue? could you please attach the complete output when trying to update?

where did get the brother drivers from? if the driver installation did not succeed anyways, try to remove the "hl1430lpr" package and see if this at least fixes you apt system.

status: New → Incomplete

Hi Michael,

I cannot remember exactly how I fixed my system but I did get apt to work
again. The drivers were from Brother.

closing this, then, as probably nothing will be done...
