What I can do with that? Is it possible to rollback to the previous state without trying to deinstall broken package??
So. I understand from output that scripts inside package are wrong. they failed to download tar.gz from Oracle site and failed to install due to that. Also it does not handle properly remove commande and trying to install it again when I want to remove package. The basic question - is it possible to just rollback that package without running scripts? F.e. like in windows "System restore"? Or I should do this manually?
