After reading Mr Muts tweet regarding some updates for w3af, chntpw and watobo
I ran the apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade command. It got part way through and failed due to the below.
Now im pretty new to linux in general, i know my way rnd and can do the basics but after a good few hours of trying to fix this myself along with my friend goodle. I cant crack it, could someone please help me out?
ERROR is as of below
Unpacking openvas-scanner (from .../openvas-scanner_3.1.1-bt0_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/openvas-scanner_3.1.1-bt0_i386.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/local/lib/openvas/plugins/synscan.nes', which is also in package openvas-plugins
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Here: Upgrading - BackTrack Linux
Also try removing openvas then upgrade or just pass the force option. If these methods fail I suggest a clean install.
I got it sorted in the end, I’m guessing the libraries changed or something as i just uninstalled the packages in question then did an apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade again and it worked. I’m quite positive i tried that previously though
Thanks none the less Sickness
