Half installed .deb causing problems :(

Postby Teaboy » 2005-10-20 18:20

Is there any way to set some packages as not installed?

I tried installing Plesk, which installed some .deb files but then stopped installing. This has left me with some problems.

When I try to run 'apt-get -f install', I get this:

Code: Select all

The following extra packages will be installed:
  exim4 exim4-base exim4-config exim4-daemon-light libgcrypt11-dev libgnutls12 libgpg-error-dev libidn11 libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev php4-imap php4-mysql

So basically if I can mark the packages as being not installed, then I can run the Plesk installer again and hopefully it will finish installing everything this time.

Or maybe I'm doing it the wrong way?

With that many packages waiting to be upgraded or not fully installed your system was in a broken state before you even began installing plesk. Fix your broken system first, forget about plesk. Since you didn't have exim4 installed I'll assume you're trying to run sarge upgraded from woody. There's no point in trying to skip a version, it's not supported, so make sure your /etc/apt/sources.list to points to sarge. Do an apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade and post the output here.
