I am using Ubuntu 14.04, newly upgraded from 12.04. I was trying to upgrade my software, but it is showing many, many dpkg errors regarding texlive-*.

When I type following command:

sudo apt-get upgrade

I get the following error:

  • Your problem appears to be with tex-common. Can you post the output of apt-get install tex-common? Also, post the output of apt-cache policy tex-common. Both in the question, please. – Faheem Mitha Aug 24 '14 at 20:43

This appears to be Ubuntu bug #1236951. See the link for workarounds and the status of a fix.

    No, thats not helping me. – mubeena Aug 24 '14 at 20:36
  • @mubeena Did you see this in the bug report: "I also had this problem after upgrading from 12.04 to 14.04. My TeX install was broken afterwards. I eventually got it working by uninstalling all tex-related packages, deleting /etc/texmf/texmf.d/, and reinstalling the tex packages." – somethingSomething Aug 24 '14 at 23:53
  • Yes, I have uninstalled all tex packages and reinstalled them twice, but thats also not working for me. – mubeena Aug 25 '14 at 1:17
  • @mubeena: It seems that removing config files is an important step, did you do that? Otherwise, I'm not sure what to suggest except to wait for a fix (it appears that it is actively being worked on) or start debugging it yourself. – Nate Eldredge Aug 25 '14 at 1:27

    Actually I think, I was not ablt to remove all packages carefully and thats why my reinstallation didnt work. I followed the following steps, from the thread given here, sudo apt-get remove --purge tex-common texlive-* sudo rm /etc/texmf/ sudo apt-get install tex-common sudo apt-get install texlive-base sudo apt-get install texlive-latex-recommended :: and this worked perfectly. Thanks a lot for your time and effort. – mubeena Aug 25 '14 at 10:07

You can run apt-get install -f. If this doesn't fix your system, then something is really wrong, and a fix might be to remove the TeX related packages and try again.

    No, again the same error. – mubeena Aug 24 '14 at 20:12

Same situation for me, remove the older directory, then reinstall:

sudo apt remove --purge tex-common texlive-*
sudo rm -rf /etc/texmf/
sudo apt install tex-common texlive-base texlive-latex-recommended texlive-latex-extra texlive-fonts-recommended latex-cjk-all
