i am afraid You are right. But i am really not that deep into ubuntu to even guess.
hopefully i didn`t post a "format c:"
if, then i am really sorry!
the update worked for me and i am not experiencing any troubles (until now).
dpkg-divert --package dash --divert /bin/sh.distrib --add /bin/sh
this means that everything that wants to install /bin/sh is redirected to /bin/sh.distrib? The only exception is the package dash?
At my computer /bin/sh is still linked to bash and /bin/sh.distrib is also a link to bash.
I checked if i have substituted dash with bash back then, but as my bash history tells me, it doesn`t seem so.
i just tried to remove the diversion and i got the error again when trying to update.
with the diversion everything is or seems to be fine....
what do You think? Or anybody else, who can bring some enlightment?
