SOLVED: Sid: dpkg cannot configure network manager 1.8.4-1

Postby jheaton5 » 2017-09-21 10:44

Network Manager is broken after this morning's upgrade. I didn't have time to file a bug report, but will file one when I get home this evening.

Edit: I also did not have time to research the issue which I will later. dpkg timed out trying to configure the package. I ran:
Code: Select all
# dpkg --configure network-manger

which also timed out reporting error[1]

Interesting - mine works and I updated this morning as well (and just now).

Code: Select all
apt-cache policy network-manager
network-manager:
  Installed: 1.8.4-1
  Candidate: 1.8.4-1
  Version table:
 *** 1.8.4-1 500
        500 http://cdn-fastly.deb.debian.org/debian unstable/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
we see things not as they are, but as we are.

Well,
I guess that's what I get for trying to upgrade when I'm in a hurry. When I got home and booted up network-manager worked fine. Then I upgraded another computer running sid and had no issues. I'm not sure what happened but all is good. Thanks for looking in on me.

network-manager did not fully configure in Thursday's upgrade. Every time I did an upgrade after that dpkg would try to configure it which stopped the service. For some unknown reason, rebooting brought the wireless network back up. The solution was to purge network-manager and reinstall. I had to modify my /etc/network/interfaces file to be able to connect to eth0. After installing network-manager-1.8.4-1 again dpkg was able to fully configure the package. all is well.
