Bug Description

$ apt-get install update-notifier (with upgrade-notifier installed)
...
Paramétrage de update-notifier (0.37.2) ...
touch: ne peut faire un touch sur `/var/lib/upgrade-notifier/dpkg-run-stamp':
Aucun fichier ou répertoire de ce type
E: Problem executing scripts DPkg::Post-Invoke 'touch
/var/lib/upgrade-notifier/dpkg-run-stamp'
E: Sub-process returned an error code

"Aucun fichier ou répertoire de ce type" == "No such file or directory"

Please run "sudo dpkg -P upgrade-notifier" (this will remove the configuration
file from upgrade-notifier that causes this problem)

thanks,

Yes, that's why I kept the bug open :)
I added a preinst that checks for unmodified 99upgrade-notifier files
and removes them. Should be fixed with: update-notifier 0.37.3

Can you send me your /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99upgrade-notifier file please? I would
like to see
if my md5sum is wrong.

thanks,

no such file, but in fact the bug seems to be fixed now, the issue was perhaps
just still here during the update-notifier update.
I'm closing this bug, thanks.
