    Question init-system-helpers_1.29_all.deb - error processing archive

    I am running the Live distro 7.2.0 from USB flash drive. I ran sudo apt-get update then sudo apt-get upgrade leaving me with the following issue:

    Code:
    Preparing to unpack .../init-system-helpers_1.29_all.deb ...
    Unpacking init-system-helpers (1.29) over (1.24) ...
    dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/init-system-helpers_1.29_all.deb (--unpack):
     trying to overwrite '/usr/share/man/man8/update-rc.d.8.gz', which is also in package sysv-rc 2:2.88dsf-53.2knoppix0
    Processing triggers for man-db (2.7.5-1) ...
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     /var/cache/apt/archives/init-system-helpers_1.29_all.deb
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    knoppix@Microknoppix:~$
    If I run it again I get:
    Code:
    knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     sysvinit-utils : Depends: init-system-helpers (>= 1.25~) but 1.24 is installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
    If I run 'sudo apt-get -f install'
    Code:
    Preparing to unpack .../init-system-helpers_1.29_all.deb ...
    Unpacking init-system-helpers (1.29) over (1.24) ...
    dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/init-system-helpers_1.29_all.deb (--unpack):
     trying to overwrite '/usr/share/man/man8/update-rc.d.8.gz', which is also in package sysv-rc 2:2.88dsf-53.2knoppix0

    Been there, done that. Not a good idea on two counts.

    1. You need to ponder what forcing synaptic to deal with unmet dependencies really means.
    It means you either know what to expect or not. If you don't know, results of forcing could be surprising.

    2. Klaus K mixes different versions of Debian material to arrive at Knoppix. In doing so, he always
    makes sure his final result works as presented. But he never guarantees that it will survive a
    simple upgrade. It usually doesn't, we often find. Klaus usually brings everything up-to-date
    about once a year, and some of us find that more than adequate.
