Error in updating using update manager

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I tried to update the already installed packages using update manager.  
But it is giving me an error likes this: 
Failed in buffer_read(fd): files list for package `libsvga1': Input/output error 
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2) 
Also this is preventing me from installing other packages>too.

Why not you try the pseudo apt get update in the command line?

This is a very useful thing and you must use it frequently to avoid such errors. We use it because sometimes disk that you are using might be already full. There is also a chance that the hard disk has some errors so better check the log file of the hard disk.

Apart from these you can also use the apt-get for the update of all the important packages related to your system using less time and less resources. It will automatically update them. It has a list of sources from which it downloads.

If you still can't get the error sorted out, go to this forums and follow the steps. There is a complete guide from a user to address this type of issue. I can't write it in detail here so I just refer you to that link.

Hello Robbie,

To resolve the issue that you are trying to get, you will need to do the following:

  • First, you will need to find the process ID here: fuser -v /var/cache/debconf/config.dat
  • And after that you will need to kill the pid: sudo kill ###
  • Once you have done that you will have to do the following:
  • Go to start, and then type Run in the search box, and then press Enter.
  • In the run dialog box, type cmd and then press Enter to open the command prompt.
  • In the command prompt, you will need to type the following and the press Enter: sudo apt-get upgrade

That should resolve the issue that you're getting.
