libdw1:i386 libelf1 unmet dependencies

Postby 4joeyirosh1 » 2021-02-05 09:56

Good day,

I am a debian bullseye/sid 64 bit user.When I ran the command apt update && apt upgrade today to update my packages i got error messages below

Code: Select all
#apt update && apt upgrade
You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 libdw1:i386 : Depends: libelf1:i386 (= 0.182+20210203-1.1) but 0.182+20210203-1 is installed
 libelf1 : Breaks: libelf1:i386 (!= 0.182+20210203-1.1) but 0.182+20210203-1 is installed
 libelf1:i386 : Breaks: libelf1 (!= 0.182+20210203-1) but 0.182+20210203-1.1 is installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).


When I ran the apt --fix-broken install I got messages below

Code: Select all
#apt --fix-broken install
Unpacking libelf1:i386 (0.182+20210203-1.1) over (0.182+20210203-1) ...
dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/libelf1_0.182+20210203-1.1_i386.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite shared '/usr/share/locale/en@boldquot/LC_MESSAGES/elfutils.mo', which is different from other instances of package libelf1:i386
dpkg-deb: error: paste subprocess was killed by signal (Broken pipe)

 /var/cache/apt/archives/libelf1_0.182+20210203-1.1_i386.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)


When I researched on this I stumbled onto the debian bugs webpage https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=981835 but solutions provided dont work for me.

Kindly assist.

I saw a report from a sid user on another forum that moving the file suggested in the bug report worked for them.

You run bullseye/sid so you know there sometimes are version conflicts and/or breakages. Try full-upgrade again in a day or a week.
