Exclamation Errors with apt-get update apt-get upgrade

When i do an apt-get update and a apt-get upgrade on my debian sarge system i receive this error:

dpkg: syntax error: unknown group `Debian-exim' in statusoverride file
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)

What does this mean?

Default Hmmmm

Its seems to me that you do not have the correct debian-packages installed, or apt-get was somehow corrupted when you tried to install it.

goto: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tools/Apt and download it.



su -

Hit enter. Type your root password. Hit enter. Type:

yum -y install apt

Hit enter. Wait for the installation to complete. Type:

yum -y install synaptic

Hit enter. Wait for the installation to complete. Type:

gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dag.list

Hit enter and gedit will open. If there is nothing in this file (blank page), type the following in gedit:

# Name: Dag RPM Repository
# URL: http://dag.wieers.com/apt/

### Dag RPM Repository for Fedora Core
rpm http://apt.sw.be fedora/4/en/i386 dag

Be sure there is a carriage return (blank line) at the bottom of the file. Click the "save" icon in gedit and then close gedit. While still in the root terminal, type:

gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/freshrpms.list

Hit enter and gedit will open. If there is nothing in this file (blank page), type the following in gedit:

# Name: FreshRPMS
# URL: http://ayo.freshrpms.net/

### Fedora Core
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/4/i386 freshrpms

Be sure there is a carriage return (blank line) at the bottom of the file. Click the "save" icon in gedit and then close gedit. While still in the root terminal, type:

gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dries.list

Hit enter and gedit will open. If there is nothing in this file (blank page), type the following in gedit:

# Name: Dries RPM Repository
# URL: http://dries.studentenweb.org/apt/

### Fedora Core
rpm http://apt.sw.be dries/fedora/fc4/i386 dries

Be sure there is a carriage return (blank line) at the bottom of the file. Click the "save" icon in gedit and then close gedit. While still in the root terminal, type:

rpm --import http://dries.ulyssis.org/rpm/RPM-GPG-KEY.dries.txt

Hit enter. Type:

rpm --import http://dag.wieers.com/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt

Hit enter. Type:

rpm --import http://freshrpms.net/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.txt

Hit enter. You have just imported the GPG keys for your apt repositories. Type:

apt-get update

Your apt repository package list will be updated. Close the terminal.
