Ubuntu 14.04 - Dependency is not satisfiable: lib gnome vfs 2.0 while installing aptoncd_0.1.98+bzr117-1.4_all.deb

Asked by Rossco on 2014-07-26

I have a remote desktop with a fresh install of ubuntu 14.04, I want to install aptoncd so I can install updates, upgrades and other software from my laptop with the same ubuntu 14.04, which can be connected to the internet at my work place. I down loaded the package aptoncd_0.1.98+bzr117-1.4_all.deb from http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/core/trusty/universe/base/aptoncd, and tried to install the package, then software centre opened up and displayed the following: Dependency is not satisfiable: lib gnome vfs 2.0, Error. This has prevented me from installing aptoncd, and consiquently anything else. I have googled for information and found a bug report at https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=706110, but I still don't know what to do to get aptoncd installed.

Both my desktop and laptop are 64bit

If you copy the debs from the online system to the offline one it will be ok. The debs are in /var/cache/apt/archives

Please provide the full output of the terminal commands

uname -a
lsb_release -a
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install aptoncd

Hi, thanks guys for your replies, I took actionparsnip's advise and copied the archive packages from a fresh install on virtualbox, so I would gain only Aptoncd and its dependancies, copied them to a folder in my home folder and ran the following terminal command:

sudo dpkg -i /home/me/folder/*.deb

This installed Aptoncd and all dependancies perfectly
I only have an issue installing "hal" now to restore the .iso it makes, but I'll ask that in another question.

Thanks again
