Another problem with update manager

Asked by William Pabon on 2014-08-20

This one happened with the 12.04 OS I installed in my Mac using Virtual Box. While running Update Manager, I get the following message (while updating LibreOffice):

COULD NOT INITIALIZE THE PACKAGE INFORMATION
An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

'E:Type 'ain' is not known on line 3 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/libreoffice-ppa-precise.list'

As a result of that I ge a red negative sign in the top bar!

How do I solve this? Your help is deeply appreciated. Thanks.

What is the full output of the following Terminal command?

cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list.d/libreoffice-ppa-precise.list

@Mark:

Thanks for answering. Here's the result of the command requested:

williepabon@william-VirtualBox:~$ cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list.d/libreoffice-ppa-precise.list
     1 deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/libreoffice/ppa/ubuntu precise main
     2 deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/libreoffice/ppa/ubuntu precise main
     3 ain
williepabon@william-VirtualBox:~$

Hope this helps to solve the problem. Thanks.

I suspect that your package manager is experiencing the following bug:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/software-properties/+bug/789859

Line 3 is invalid.

Run this Terminal command:

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/libreoffice-ppa-precise.list

Remove the line containing "ain" and save the change to the file.

Then please send the output of the following commands:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

@Mark:
Thanks for answering fast. Here, the resultso of the two commands. Only problem I saw was at the end of the dist-upgrade command (an error code (1)).

Hope this helps.

There is a problem with the PPA you enabled.

The package http://ppa.launchpad.net/libreoffice/ppa/ubuntu/ precise/main libreoffice-base i386 1:4.3.0-3ubuntu2~precise1 [1,636 kB]
contains the file /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/basic/script.xlc which is also part of the official Ubuntu package libreoffice-common which contains the same file.

There is a conflict between the PPA package and the official Ubuntu package.

I suppose you will need to force the install of libreoffice-base

Try these commands:

cd /var/cache/apt/archives/

sudo dpkg -i --force-all libreoffice-base_1%3a4.3.0-3ubuntu2~precise1_i386.deb

I also suggest contacting the PPA maintainer about this.

The PPA package does not work. I suggest contacting the PPA maintainer about this.

I am not sure, but I think the PPA maintainer might be Rico Tzschichholz.

You can contact him via this page:

https://launchpad.net/~ricotz

You could also try contacting Björn Michaelsen here:

https://launchpad.net/~bjoern-michaelsen

I also suggest rerunning the following commands to see if the package manager is still giving errors:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Can you help with this problem?
