Code: Select all
Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. Unable to lock the download directory.
Apt downloaded a lot of stuff, selected packages to remove, packages to upgrade and other packages to install.
Everything went well until the actual installation part.
Synaptic froze, I waited for about 45 minutes and it still didn't respond, so I killed it.
After that whenever I tried to launch Synaptic I got a weird error about missing widgets and being unable to lock down the download directory.
So I did and apt-get update, apt-get upgrade and after that everything was fine again.
I saw someone with a similar problem on linuxquestions so this is why I ask.
I didn't tell him to try and run apt-get from a terminal window but I'm about to do that now.
Anyway, if someone has a clue, feel free to share, I'd like to be able to solve that problem when I'm gonna upgrade to KDE 3.3 or whatever
