Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

/var/cache/apt/archives/dhcp3-common_3.0.6.dfsg-1ubuntu9_amd64.deb konnte nicht installiert werden. (translates as "could not be installed")

The upgrade will continue but the '/var/cache/apt/archives/dhcp3-common_3.0.6.dfsg-1ubuntu9_amd64.deb' package may be in a not working state. Please consider submitting a bugreport about it.

nicht ganz gelesen in buffer_copy (Backend dpkg-deb während "./usr/share/man/ja/man5/dhclient.conf.5.gz") (translates as "not completely read in buffer_copy (Backend dpkg_deb while "...")

It happened during an online upgrade from Kubuntu 7.10 to 8.04

thanks for reporting this bug. I noticed that you reported a second bug almost immediately after this one. Were these errors both from the same attempted upgrade or were they separate attempts? If they are the same upgrade we can close one of these threads and continue to work in other.

Changed in update-manager:
status: New → Incomplete

Yes, they were different, but from the same attempted upgrade.

The upgrade wasn't complete, but still bootable. After removing the
package atop, deleting the affected archives in /var/cache/apt/archives
and a dpkg -a --configure, everything seems fine.

Regards,
Holger

Thanks for your bugreport.

Please attach the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade to this bugreport. The kind of error that dpkg output looks like there might be a HW problem or filesystem corruption. Could you please check that?

 Thanks Michael

This was either a corrupted archive or no space left on device.
