mailman installation failing
 
Hi there,

Looks like apt-get is attempting to downgrade mailman, any clues why
this is happening? And also why it is failing. Also the Machine is a
32 bit machine so I am trying to figure out why
mailman_1%3a2.1.9-9ubuntu1.2_amd64.deb was ever installed in the first
place.

This appears to be an upgrade using local cached archives, in which
case it appears that your local cached copy of the newer mailman is
corrupt. You may want to run 'apt-get clean' and then try the upgrade
again.

Please try bottom posting.

Also, it sounds like you have mailman installed already and you're
trying to install an older version that the one already there. If you
really want to do this, you should first run apt-get purge mailman,
but I'd be careful about such endeavors.
