[Bug 1388991] Re: kernel postinst scripts errors


You may need to run the following:

sudo apt-get install -f
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update

Then re-install the package.

If that does not resolve your issue, please mark the bug as "Confirmed"

  kernel postinst scripts errors

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  During a normal

  sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

  my "utopic" system reported the need to upgrade the kernel package.

  During the process, I saw

  Setting up linux-image-3.16.0-24-generic (3.16.0-24.32) ...
  Running depmod.
  update-initramfs: deferring update (hook will be called later)
  Examining /etc/kernel/postinst.d.
  run-parts: executing /etc/kernel/postinst.d/apt-auto-removal 3.16.0-24-generic /boot/vmlinuz-3.16.0-24-generic
  run-parts: executing /etc/kernel/postinst.d/dkms 3.16.0-24-generic /boot/vmlinuz-3.16.0-24-generic
  sed: -e expression #1, char 6: unknown command: `m'

  so something must be wrong in some postinst script.

  I cannot evaluate the impact that this may have on the correct
  installation of the new kernel.
