I have a Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon 64-bit install running on ZFS root. I occasionally use the
info command to look up things which I can't remember off-hand, for example, obscure details of C format strings.
When I issue an
info printf and then I navigate to "*Note ‘printf’ format directives:" and press ENTER I receive the following error:
"Cannot find node 'Output Conversion Syntax'"
I know that the above used to work. The last time I had a problem with info was when an
info info command produced another unknown node error. I fixed this with:
sudo apt update && sudo apt install texinfo texinfo-doc-nonfree
Now, though, I cannot fix the problem. I think it may be related to the following bug: info missing help docs
info info and
H command return error
Can anyone offer any help on how to resolve whatever problem is causing info to malfunction?
