Im relatively new to this so please bear with me ..
Im running an amazon instance with ubuntu 11.10
and after performing
everything with my package manager went haywire
if i try to perform any apt-get operations i get
Fetched 35.2 MB in 7s (4,399 kB/s) Extracting templates from packages: 100% Preconfiguring packages ... Setting up apt (0.8.16~exp5ubuntu13.6) ... ERROR: Can't find the archive-keyring Is the ubuntu-keyring package installed? dpkg: error processing apt (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing: apt E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
and after looking around and trying a bunch of stuff which includes :
- performing a clean and update or clean and upgrade
- taking a new sources.list altogether
- adding the keyring again
- and a whole bunch of other completely random stuff in the desperate attempt of a miracle
nothing worked ..
so any help will help me find ......no, come close a solution will be greatly appreciated :)
