Well, this problem has come back for me again, I don't remember if I had this problem in 0.6, but I am in 0.6.1
I change the source in /etc/spt/sources.list to deb:
http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main non-free contrib
I then run 'sudo apt-get update'
I then run 'sudo apt-get install make'
and get the following output:
|Code Sample |
konnat@box:/etc/apt$ sudo apt-get install make
Reading Package Lists... Done

The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 120 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/423kB of archives.
After unpacking 1094kB of additional disk space will be used.
/bin/sh: line 1: /user/sbin/dpkg-preconfigure: No such file or directory
tar: Couldnt remove old file: Is a directory
dpkg-deb: subprocess tar returned error exit status 1
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/make_3.80-6_i386.deb (--unpack):
subprocess dpkg-deb --control returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
any help would be appreciated
