Hi, i had some problems with chattr and lsattr which did not show me any attributes when i used them. So i decided to remove the package e2fsprogs and re-install it on my debian 8 system. But now i am running in bigger troubles: apt-get install e2fsprogs Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following NEW packages will be installed: e2fsprogs 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded. Need to get 0 B/750 kB of archives. After this operation, 2,848 kB of additional disk space will be used. (Reading database ... 67551 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack .../e2fsprogs_1.42.12-2+b1_amd64.deb ... Unpacking e2fsprogs (1.42.12-2+b1) ... dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/e2fsprogs_1.42.12-2+b1_amd64.deb (--unpack): unable to make backup link of `./usr/bin/chattr' before installing new version: Operation not permitted dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe) Processing triggers for man-db (22.214.171.124-5) ... Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/e2fsprogs_1.42.12-2+b1_amd64.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) So e2fsprogs cannot be re-installed because chattr and lsattr are protected and therfore cannot be updated and so my full server is not working anymore. Anyone got an Idea HOW to get rid of /usr/bin/chattr and /usr/bin/lsattr to get the package reinstalled again?
