Default ubuntu12.04 only: version number does not start with digit

folks/experts:
anyone knows any solution/workaround to this issue?

I googled a lot and found a lot, but I don't see any verified answers to
this issue in tons of discussions...

Try

sudo apt-get clean
sudo dpkg --clear-avail

and then try the update again and see if that clears it.

Hi Preston:
thanks for the response!
that looks help , at least that "version number does not start with
digit" issue is gone.

I upgrade it...

You might try

sudo apt-get remove --purge dibbler-client

If that doesn't work, try

dpkg --remove --force-remove dibbler-client

Hopefully that should get rid of it. Then you should be able to do an
update and upgrade. If not, post the error output of the two commands
above to the list.

sorry, it looks like I was a little short on the last command. It
should have been:

sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq dibbler-client

That said, it looks like the package is trying to do a stop via the
init script and failing. You might try, before running the dpkg
command, to do a

/etc/init.d/dibbler-client stop

Next, I would try to do a
ps aux | grep dibb

which should hopefully give you the processes of any dibbler-client
processes running. You can then either do a

killall dibbler-client

or

kill <pid>

where <pid> is the process id number of the dibbler-client. Then once
you are sure it isn't running, try again. Hopefully this will do
it,but if not, post back.

It appears that this is common problem with dibbler-client (google on
"Stopping DHCPv6 client: invoke-rc.d: initscript"):

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/dibbler/+bug/779857
[Stopping DHCPv6 client: invoke-rc.d: initscript dibbler-client, action

it.]
Message #10:

may contain a workaround worth trying.

where <pid> is the process id number of the dibbler-client. Then once
you are sure it isn't running, try again. Hopefully this will do

this doesn't work either, stopping the it looks real strange to me...

Default ubuntu12.04 only: version number does not start with digit

sorry, it looks like I was a little short on the last command. It
should have been:

sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq dibbler-client

That said, it looks like the package is trying to do a stop via the
init script and failing. You might try, before running the dpkg
command, to do a

/etc/init.d/dibbler-client stop

Next, I would try to do a
ps aux | grep dibb

which should hopefully give you the processes of any dibbler-client
processes running. You can then either do a

killall dibbler-client

or

kill <pid>

where <pid> is the process id number of the dibbler-client. Then once
you are sure it isn't running, try again. Hopefully this will do
it,but if not, post back.

It appears that this is common problem with dibbler-client (google on
"Stopping DHCPv6 client: invoke-rc.d: initscript"):

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/dibbler/+bug/779857
[Stopping DHCPv6 client: invoke-rc.d: initscript dibbler-client, action
"stop" failed.]

<http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=574624>
[dibbler-client: after removing package with dselect impossible to purge
it.]
Message #10:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?msg=10;bug=574624
may contain a workaround worth trying.





Hi NoOp:
you are right, the issue looks because of a buggy code in the current
release of dibbler-client, solution is to change:


/etc/init.d/dibbler-client line 48 from:

48 ($DAEMON stop 2>&1 > /dev/null ; true)

to:

48 ($DAEMON stop 2>&1 > /dev/null || true)

and after that it goes smooth.

thank you very much Preston and NoOp for your help!
