Does anyone else have a problem with the package manager installing applications?
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
it downloads all the files and asks to proceed, I say yes
It gives up with an error "Package X" contains an empty file dpkage returned error status -2
so then I try to clear all of the cache
sudo apt-get clear
sudo apt-get autoclear
and try to repair
sudo apt-get install -f
Sometimes it will work, sometimes it will return errors and I will break the package manager entirely and have to re-install. I have re-installed my image several times. Trying to install git-core, network-manager-gnome, vlc, and some other packages and update one at a time. Once I got to a point where the error was "files missing for pkg-configure can not continue" and I could not get package manager to work even after trying dpkg -configure -a, or any combination of the usual package manager fixes.
This happens over and over again for each package I try to install.
My Pi is running on a 5v 2Amp adapter, I have also tried another 5v 1amp adapter. This also happens on my Beagle Board here, but it does not happen on any other architecture running Wheezy like my desktop PC. I have even run the package manager at a friends house, with his adapter and on his network, and tired a Samsung SD card VS my Microcenter brand card.
For some reason I can not reliably install applications on here its very frustrating. I currently have a completely borked apt package manager. Why is aptitude on the ARM architecture not working for me at ALL? This is also happining on my Beagle board. I say apt-get update every time, and apt-get install package, and it will fail 90% of the time.
