[Bug 1086894] Re: package linux-image-2.6.32-45-generic 2.6.32-45.99 failed to install/upgrade: subprocess dpkg-deb --fsys-tarfile returned error exit status 2


Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make
Ubuntu better.  It seems that there was an error on your system when
trying to install a particular package.  Please execute the following
command, as it will clear your package cache, in a terminal:

sudo apt-get clean

Then try performing the update again.  This will likely resolve your
issue, but the failure can be caused by filesystem or memory corruption.
So please also run a fsck on your filesystem(s) and a memory test.  If
this does resolve your bug please set its status to Invalid.  Thanks in

Bug description:
  System appeared functional this morning when I turned it on.  Noticed
  the e-mail to browser linker did not function. Rebooted and noticed
  the log-on screen was not what I expected (i.e. did not request p/w).
  several reboots did not repair. Entered Terminal Mode and did apt-get
  update, noted several needed updates. then Apt-get upgrade, ended with
  error 1. Rebooted. received Crash report notice "Linux-
  image-2.6.32-45-generic 2.6.32-45.100 failed to install/upgrade".
  Currently system is functional with some frustrating exceptions.  Also
  note that none of the GUI update tools work, i.e. updater manager
  etc.. contact me if more information is needed.  This may be ( I am
  considering it so) security issue!  Mike.
