Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better.
Examining the information you have given us (esp. request at end), this looks more like you need support rather than having a bug. Have you attempted to install --reinstall the package as it suggested? This bug report can be converted to a question (which is aimed at support). You can also find help with your problem in the support forum of your local Ubuntu community http://loco.ubuntu.com/ or asking at https://askubuntu.com or https://ubuntuforums.org, or for more support options please look at https://discourse.ubuntu.com/t/community- support/709 I've marked this bug incomplete as normal support steps don't appear to have been tried, or evidence of them hasn't been provided. If you believe I'm in error, or can provide additional detail of steps done, please change status back to "New" and leave comment, or additional information as to what was attempted. Thanks again for helping make Ubuntu better. ** Changed in: whoopsie (Ubuntu) Status: New => Incomplete -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to whoopsie in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1844031 Title: package whoopsie 0.2.52.5ubuntu0.1 failed to install/upgrade: package is in a very bad inconsistent state; you should reinstall it before attempting configuration Status in whoopsie package in Ubuntu: Incomplete Bug description: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code ProblemType: Package DistroRelease: Ubuntu 16.04 Package: whoopsie 0.2.52.5ubuntu0.1 ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 4.15.0-54.58~16.04.1-generic 4.15.18 Uname: Linux 4.15.0-54-generic x86_64 ApportVersion: 2.20.1-0ubuntu2.18 AptOrdering: libwhoopsie0: Install libwhoopsie0: Configure whoopsie: Configure NULL: ConfigurePending Architecture: amd64 CrashReports: 600:0:117:82082:2019-09-15 08:49:33.570032835 +0400:2019-09-15 08:49:34.570032835 +0400:/var/crash/whoopsie.0.crash Date: Sun Sep 15 08:49:34 2019 DpkgHistoryLog: Start-Date: 2019-09-15 08:49:22 Commandline: apt --fix-broken install Requested-By: cvit (1000) Upgrade: libwhoopsie0:amd64 (0.2.52.5, 0.2.52.5ubuntu0.1) DuplicateSignature: package:whoopsie:0.2.52.5ubuntu0.1 Setting up libwhoopsie0:amd64 (0.2.52.5ubuntu0.1) ... dpkg: error processing package whoopsie (--configure): package is in a very bad inconsistent state; you should ErrorMessage: package is in a very bad inconsistent state; you should reinstall it before attempting configuration InstallationDate: Installed on 2019-02-20 (206 days ago) InstallationMedia: Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS "Xenial Xerus" - Release amd64 (20180228) RelatedPackageVersions: apport-noui N/A SourcePackage: whoopsie Title: package whoopsie 0.2.52.5ubuntu0.1 failed to install/upgrade: package is in a very bad inconsistent state; you should reinstall it before attempting configuration UpgradeStatus: No upgrade log present (probably fresh install) To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/whoopsie/+bug/1844031/+subscriptions -- Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~touch-packages Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~touch-packages More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
