Have a look at the output of

lsattr /usr/share/fonts/X11/encodings/large/big5hkscs-0.enc.gz

If you see any problematic attributes then you can change them with the
"chattr" command.

(Send the "lsattr ..." output to the list if you are not sure what it
means.)

thank you.

I get this:

$ lsattr /usr/share/fonts/X11/encodings/large/big5hkscs-0.enc.gz
--SDi-dAc-Z-E---T- /usr/share/fonts/X11/encodings/large/big5hkscs-0.enc.gz

How to change using 'chattr' command?

I have tried you suggestion. And it becomes:

$ lsattr /usr/share/fonts/X11/encodings/large/big5hkscs-0.enc.gz
----------Z-E----- /usr/share/fonts/X11/encodings/large/big5hkscs-0.enc.gz

But I still get the same error:

pkg: error processing
/var/cache/apt/archives/xfonts-encodings_1%3a1.0.2-3_all.deb
(--unpack):
unable to make backup link of
`./usr/share/fonts/X11/encodings/large/big5hkscs-0.enc.gz' before
installing new version: Operation not permitted

dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:

/var/cache/apt/archives/xfonts-encodings_1%3a1.0.2-3_all.deb E:

Try "rm /usr/share/fonts/X11/encodings/large/big5hkscs-0.enc.gz". If
that doesn't work try fsck-ing the partition containing the file with
the bad attributes. You may have to boot from a recovery CD or live CD
in order to fsck.
