Ubuntu: chroot: Ubuntu 14.04 - udev upgrade Problems!



Question:

im running Ubuntu 14.04 (x86) on a OpenELEC (x64) host system. Everything worked great until a few days ago when it tried to upgrade the "udev" package after running apt-get upgrade.

apt-get upgrade output:  Setting up udev (204-5ubuntu20.5) ...  runlevel:/var/run/utmp: No such file or directory   * udev requires hotplug support, not started     ...fail!  invoke-rc.d: initscript udev, action "restart" failed.  dpkg: error processing package udev (--configure):   subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1  Errors were encountered while processing:   udev  E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)  

The System still runs fine and i can install other packages but i would still like to get rid of this error. Any Ideas?


Solution:1

/var/run/utmp seems to be missing possibly due to improper shutdown. Try to re-create it using:

sudo -s  cat /dev/null > /var/run/utmp  

and then restart your computer.
