Ticket #9918 (closed defect: invalid)
Installing VirtualBox "deb" produces a conflict error message in Ubuntu 11.10
|Reported by:||Perryg||Owned by:|
Compiling and installing or downloading and installing produces
Error: Breaks existing package 'virtualbox-4.1' conflict: virtualbox-4.1 ( )
VirtualBox works but to update it you must first dpkg -P virtualbox-4.1
I have checked and VirtualBox was not pre-installed, not even the guest additions.
At the beginning of the install using gdebi the installer says everything is fine and no conflicts. It even states that all packages are installed and the error only pops up after the install. Of course with this error no re-install is available in gdebi.
Any ideas what needs to be done?
