I'm not able to install, update or do anything else with
dpkg and so on.
/var/lib/dpkg/lock exists from boot-time on. When I delete it and run
apt-get update, it prints out, that dpkg has been interrupted.
dpkg --configure -a as mentioned in the help text, but that runs into a problem with gconf2:
root@andre-ubuntu:/home/andre# dpkg --configure -a Setting up libbonoboui2-0:amd64 (2.24.5-0ubuntu2) ... Setting up libgnomeui-0:amd64 (2.24.5-2ubuntu3) ... Processing triggers for libc-bin ... ldconfig deferred processing now taking place Setting up gconf2 (3.2.6-0ubuntu1) ... (gconftool-2:16760): GConf-WARNING **: Client failed to connect to the D-BUS daemon: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
dpkg stops at this point and i can't even interrupt it with Ctrl+C.
I have the following version of Ubuntu:
Linux andre-ubuntu 3.8.0-19-generic #30-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 1 16:35:23 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Do you have any ideas what to do?
