Ubuntu: Errors encountered when installing kubuntu on 15.04



Question:

I ran:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop  

and after it gave me this error message:

dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/kde-config-telepathy-accounts_15.04.1-0ubuntu1~ubuntu15.04~ppa1_i386.deb (--unpack):   trying to overwrite '/usr/share/accounts/services/google-im.service', which is also in package account-plugin-google 0.12+15.04.20150415.1-0ubuntu2  Errors were encountered while processing:   /var/cache/apt/archives/kde-config-telepathy-accounts_15.04.1-0ubuntu1~ubuntu15.04~ppa1_i386.deb  E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)  

and whenever I try to install a new program or run the suggested solution to this problem, which was mentioned after I tried to install another program, sudo apt-get -f install I get the same error message again.

EDIT: Requested outputs.

sudo apt-get --configure -a  

gives this (too large to fit in the question).

sudo apt-get install -f  

gives:

Solution:1

That is the problem:

dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/kde-config-telepathy-accounts_15.04.1-0ubuntu1~ubuntu15.04~ppa1_i386.deb (--unpack):   trying to overwrite '/usr/share/accounts/services/google-im.service', which is also in package account-plugin-google 0.12+15.04.20150415.1-0ubuntu2  

Therefore two command in a terminal:

sudo apt-get purge account-plugin-google  sudo apt-get install -f  


Solution:2

I saw the attached link.

I think you need to do:-

sudo apt-get remove --purge kde-telepathy-minimal  sudo apt-get remove --purge kde-telepathy  

Also, try to remove orphaned packages using apt-get autoremove

EDIT: If that didn't work, try installing Aptitude:

Install aptitude:

sudo apt-get aptitude  

Run it:

sudo aptitude purge kde-telepathy  sudo aptitude purge kde-telepathy-minimal  


Solution:3

This is a bug already reported in Ubuntu, Kubuntu PPA and also in KDE:
