Was doing a package update and it ended a process and hung so I rebooted the server and now it will not allow me to perform any more updates.
I tried the following to no avail:
sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get install -f (I get a message: E: DPKG was interrupted, you must manually run sudo dpkg --configure -a to correct the problem) sudo dpkg --configure -a (I get the following - which is where it got stuck the first time) 'Setting up citadel-server (8.03- 1)' 'sendcommand: started (pid=1692) running in 504' 'Attaching to server...' 'domain Citadel server ready' 'Authentication as an internal program.' 'DOWN' '231 Shutting down server. Goodbye.' sendcommand: processing ended.'
Then it all freezes and does nothing. It looks like a orphaned processes and it locks the dpkg and the citadel-server and so my mail no longer works. forcing me to reboot the server to get it back to work.
How do I fix the index so I can do future updates? Snaptic package also will not work.
