Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Ran the following command from a user account listed with ALL permissions in visudo.

sudo tasksel install lamp-server
debconf: DbDriver "passwords" warning: could not open /var/cache/debconf/passwords.dat: Permission denied
tasksel: aptitude failed (100)

Any idea what this is/what caused it?

If you have just installed tasksell, then rebooting may help you.
