Upgrade Problem
« on: January 05, 2018, 10:16:57 pm »
After the last upgrade of 64 bit Sparky Multimedia Testing Edition:

I can't open my external data and apps partitions (both are ntfs).  They are invisible in pcmanfm, even as root.

And when I tried to open gparted, I received the following error message:

Code: [Select]
Unit -.mount does not exist, proceeding anyway.

I then tried to reinstall mount using synaptic but received the following error message:

Code: [Select]
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/libmypaint-1.3-0_1.3.0-dmo2_amd64.deb: trying to overwrite '/usr/share/locale/ca/LC_MESSAGES/libmypaint.mo', which is also in package mypaint-data 1.2.0-4.1

What now?  TIA

Would using the Rescue DVD be likely to help?

Try:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq mypaint
sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq mypaint-data
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt dist-upgrade
Nothing is easy as it looks.

Thanks, pavroo.

I'll reboot back into Sparky and try that now.

Try:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq mypaint
sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq mypaint-data
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt dist-upgrade

After the first part I couldn't proceed without reinstalling what was removed with

Code: [Select]
apt --fix-broken install
Then I could proceed and everything continued normally and I rebooted.

However after rebooting I still can't access my external partitions, of any kind.

This is what I get when I try:

Code: [Select]
Not authorized to perform operation
I am using the liquorix kernel and may reboot into the debian/sparky kernel to see what happens.

Looks like you have Openbox desktop as default, do you?
If not, let me know what it is.

Yes, that is correct.  (I add other things -like the xfce4-panel- as needed).

I rebooted into the Sparky Kernel but the condition persists (even a new btrfs partition can't be accessed).

What next?

All Operating Systems break sometimes (especially the most advanced ones).

Sparky is the best Debian derivative and has given me a lot of service.  With time I'll learn more about how to fix it (but meanwhile this problem prevents me from accessing my data).
