Webmin and apt-show-versions fails

Postby coppolino97 » 2018-12-23 13:11

Hi Guys,
I am trying to install on my Raspberry Webmin to manage it using a web browser.
During the installation it fails due to "apt-show-versions".

Code: Select all
dpkg -i webmin_1.900_all.deb
Selecting previously unselected package webmin.
(Reading database ... 53407 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack webmin_1.900_all.deb ...
Unpacking webmin (1.900) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of webmin:
 webmin depends on apt-show-versions; however:
  Package apt-show-versions is not configured yet.

dpkg: error processing package webmin (--install):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Processing triggers for systemd (232-25+deb9u6) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:

I have just tried to remove apt-show-versions but It did not worked for me.

Have you got any ideas to solve this issue?
Thanks a lot! :D

the bot says:
<dpkg> Webmin is a lame web-based interface for unsafe system administration for Unix. Check it out at http://webmin.com/ Remember, dondelelcaro *hates* webmin. "i'd rather sit on the floor shoving table knives into live electrical outlets than run webmin on an exposed server." Removed from Debian post-Sarge, see http://bugs.debian.org/343897 . The Debian package from webmin.com is of poor quality. See <free whcp> for alternatives.

<dpkg> FOSS Web Hosting Control Panels include: <DTC>, <GNUPanel>, <ISPConfig> and <ispCP> Omega. Don't use <Webmin>. http://wiki.debian.org/HostingControlPanels

Might be you will find something useful here too:
