Error trying to install Wine

Post by villandra24 » Fri Sep 04, 2020 8:11 pm

I am trying to install Wine on my landlord's computer on which I just installed Mint 20.

I have tried installing wine-installer using install-recommends in terminal, tried to install wine-installer in Synaptic, and tried to install Wine in Mint software manager.

Whatever version I'm using is the version or versions I would get when I install Wine using those methods.

Each time I got exactly the same fatal error.

dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
loading files list file for package 'bc': cannot read /var/lib/dpkg/info/bc.list (Input/output error)

How do I fix it?

Not really a Wine question (the bc package is not a part of Wine) but you can try:

Code: Select all

sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/bc.list
sudo apt install --reinstall bc
