I was trying to upgrade from a pure Etch system (i386) to Lenny, and
have come to an impasse. apt-get install apt (or aptitude install
aptitude) fails when trying to replace util-linux, saying:
install-info: No dir file specified; try --help for more information.
dpkg: warning - old pre-removal script returned error exit status 1
dpkg - trying script from the new package instead ...
install-info: No dir specified; try --help for more information.
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/util-
subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 1
install-info: unrecognized option `--description=System V interprocess
Try `install-info --help' for a complete list of options.
dpkg: error while cleaning up:
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Does anyone have an idea of how to save the system?
