I am trying to run the command
dpkg --configure -a in order to fix dpkg so I can apt-get programs.
I get the error
addgroup: The group 'systemd-journal' already exists as a system group. Exiting.
This apparently corresponds to the following bug.
Is there a way to overcome this problem for now to get my system working until the bug gets fixed?
The system is Ubuntu 16.04 server 32 bit.
