TIPS: dpkg Error: dpkg: too many errors, stopping


apt-get and dpkg are great package management tools but there might be a time that you can face the following error:

dpkg: too many errors, stopping

also when you try `apt-get upgrade` or `apt-get dist-upgrade` you will be adviced that the previous application installation was not successful thus they should execute `dpkg –configure -a` and it returns the above error.

To resolve the issue run the following command

dpkg --configure -a --abort-after=99999

  1. Great!
    according to suggestion given in this forum, regarding
    ‘too many errors’
    by upgrading to recent verssion of the UBUNTU
    I finally was able to complete the upgrading.
    Thank you very much!

    However the system after upgrading:
    – got lost connection to the internet
    and
    – got lost connection to the USB pendrive.

    It is good to have two computers connected to the internet. If one crashes you may use the second for searching for help!
