Deb package installation error using Ubuntu Software Center

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Recently many users reporting deb package installation error using Ubuntu Software Center On Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot. So here are a couple of ways to install deb package instead of using Ubuntu Software Center.

Installation deb package might be corrupted which will cause the error as well. I had the same error while trying to install Google Chrome stable release using Ubuntu Software Center.

According to the reported bugs by many users on launchpad about this issue, internal error happens for some users because the home directory is encrypted, however not many users confirmed that.


Internal error
the file"/home/linuxmov/downloads/google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb" could not be opened

Deb package installation error using Ubuntu Software Center


Hi Beeky, 

The reason for the error is broken dependencies.  Take these steps,

1.  Open Terminal "ctrl+alt+t"  ( sudo dpkg-"package name")

2.  Then install deb package using gdebi tool ( sudo apt-get install  gdebi )

3. after that, right click on the package you want to install and select gdebi package installer 

There is another option also.  you can copy this code after running the terminal " "ctrl+alt+t 

(sudo dpkg- i home/ vaibhav/ downloads/ google – chrome-stable_current_i386.deb)

Again,  another option :  At the terminal "ctrl+alt+t"  run Sudo apt – get  installed – f

Hope all works well now.
