I'm trying to install the nginx on ppa:nginx/stable on Lucid after removing the one that comes from the default sources but I get this error:

` Setting up nginx-common (0.8.54-4ppa13~lucid) ...
dpkg: error processing nginx-common (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of nginx-full:
 nginx-full depends on nginx-common (= 0.8.54-4ppa13~lucid); however:
  Package nginx-common is not configured yet.
dpkg: error processing nginx-full (--configure):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of nginx:
 nginx depends on nginx-full; however:
  Package nginx-full is not configured yet.
dpkg: error processing nginx (--configure):

Errors were encountered while processing:
 nginx-common
 nginx-full
 nginx`

I've try apt-get clean, dpkg --configure -a, apt-get -f install nginx-common but nothing is helping. Am I missing something?

Here's the output from dpkg-query -W -f='${Package}\t${Version}\n' nginx*

`nginx   0.8.54-4ppa13~lucid
nginx-common    0.8.54-4ppa13~lucid
nginx-extras
nginx-full      0.8.54-4ppa13~lucid
nginx-light`

    Ran into this issue. apt wouldn't configure nginx-full because Apache was already running on port 80. sudo service apache2 stop fixed the problem, nginx successfully installed. Commented Jun 18, 2015 at 5:16

Edit /var/lib/dpkg/info/nginx-common.postinst, comment "chmod -f 0640 $logdir/*" line. Then run install:

sudo apt-get install nginx

Or create file access.log:

sudo touch /var/log/nginx/access.log
sudo apt-get install nginx

/var/lib/dpkg/info/nginx-common.postinst:

    chmod 0750 $logdir
#    chmod -f 0640 $logdir/*
    ;;

I write small note(Russian language!)

  • sudo mkdir /var/log/nginx && sudo touch /var/log/nginx/access.log && sudo apt-get install nginx

  • test -d /var/log/nginx/ || sudo mkdir /var/log/nginx && sudo touch /var/log/nginx/access.log && sudo apt-get install nginx. if /var/log/nginx exist, touch and apt-get don't run.

  • Awesome, thanks! It worked perfectly. Commenting out chmod -f 0640 $logdir/ fixed the isssue

The postinst script, which runs at the end of the nginx-common installation, encountered an error. You can find the script at /var/lib/dpkg/info/nginx-common.postinst. If you look at this script and can figure out what is failing, you can report the problem to the maintainers of ppa:nginx/stable.
