Ubuntu 16.04 installer observation
@Wayne-Workman Ok, right. Then toss it I would say.

Ubuntu 16.04 is now officially “End of Standard Support”.
This means packages in “main” and “restricted” are no longer supported for it.
@sebastian-roth I know, need to fix it.
This happens every time there is a GRUB update for Ubuntu. Even though I specify
apt-get -y dist-upgradeit asks what to do, every time, and leaves the run in a bad state.
@Wayne-Workman We seem to have another hickup with the install test on Ubuntu 16.04 (master, dev-branch and working-1.6 this time).
Package installer seems to be in a bad state - error:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
That looks to be the case. Just a fluke. Today, it installed fine.
@Wayne-Workman Thanks Wayne for pointing this out. I don’t check on this too often and didn’t notice it.
The first error we see in the logs is:
E: gzread: Read error (-3: <fd:5>: requested length does not fit in int) E: Prior errors apply to /var/cache/apt/archives/libfontconfig1_2.11.94-0ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb ...
This happens when the FOG installer tries to install package
htmldocs. After that first error we see it actually installing a few of the dependency packages but then failing with:
Unpacking libdrm-amdgpu1:amd64 (2.4.91-2~16.04.1) ... dpkg (subprocess): unable to execute package filesystem archive extraction (dpkg-deb): Text file busy dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/libdrm-amdgpu1_2.4.91-2~16.04.1_amd64.deb (--unpack): subprocess dpkg-deb --fsys-tarfile returned error exit status 2 ...
From then on more an more package installs fail. To me it looks like a disk error or local package database being corrupted if I’d guess. But could be wrong just as well.
