Ubuntu: Why i am encountering this error


I just installed new ubuntu 14.04. I read a post on the internet "20 things to do after installing ubuntu 14.04", so I executed the command as they said.

Install multimedia codecs  sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras  

But after this several process were going and suddenly I got this error:

Errors were encountered while processing:   /var/cache/apt/archives/ttf-mscorefonts-installer_3.4+nmu1ubuntu1_all.deb  E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)  


I think it can be a broken package what can have caused this error.

Things to do after new fresh installation there is a few sites that tells you what to do but it do not mean you need to install everything as they recomend since you still have to use a little common sense on what apps or tools you wanna keep on your fresh installation and what new changes do you wanna add in etc.


That site is good since it explains a little.
