Posted by KevB on Nov. 15 2003,18:47Did you have it working before?
If not, search the forum for info on how to fix it.
If so, did you alter sources.list?
Posted by Asmodeus on Nov. 17 2003,06:28I've tried everything... Still have th above error
I tried deleting the package list manually,
ran update again, it downloads it, and gives me
the god damn error again!
Posted by John on Nov. 17 2003,15:25Asmodeus, did you run dpkg-restore as root?
If you have and the problem is from something else, download the dpkg.tar.gz file from this website, gunzip & untar the directory and copy over dpkg/status to /var/lib/dpkg/status.
