Ubuntu 16.04 cqrlog 2.0.0 update fails

I just moved from ubuntu 15.10 to 16.04 today. While cqrlog-2.0.0 runs fine, I get the following error when trying to update:

# apt-get install --upgrade cqrlog

Has anyone see and hopefully solved this?

Fails to update

I did the update to 2.0.0-1 before Ubuntu released 16-04lts. CQRlog works fine but I cannot update it to the "xenial" version. Dpkg reports an error in the cleanup process and halts. I cannot remove CQRlog to try a fresh install because "update manager" states the program is in "bad condition" and the remove exits. For a program that is in "bad condition", it works really good! I like all the updates.

Thanks for the info, Clayton.

Thanks for the info, Clayton. Good to know I'm not alone! I can't remove cqrlog (to do a reinstall) and now also cannot update my system because it chokes at that point and quits. Looks like I might be learning a lot more about ubuntu package management shortly, which isn't a bad thing but nothing I'm especially excited about either. :-)

Hey Mike,

Hey Mike,
Try Synaptic to remove CQRLog then reinstall. 73 Timo OH7JHA

Hi Mike,

please look at this post:

Thanks, everyone, for the

Thanks, everyone, for the ideas. I've waited to post in the hope of finding a solution, but think my problem is deeper than a cqrlog issue. After removing cqrlog I then receive an error that desktop-file-utils can't be configured. Since I backup my home directory using rsync to another machine I think I will simply do a reinstall of ubuntu and start fresh. It will be faster, though I'm sure I'll learn less about ubuntu by not solving the problem directly. Sometimes laziness wins... :-)

Many thanks again. 73!

[SOLVED] Ubuntu 16.04 cqrlog 2.0.0 update fails

All is well again on my ubuntu box (16.04 x86_64). With the workweek over I did an ubuntu reinstall on top of my prior 16.04 and that corrected whatever issues caused the problem. I believe the problems stemmed from a failed gnuradio install which installed its own glib related files. Now I'm simply living with a slightly older gnuradio from apt-get but no other headaches. Sorry for thinking the problem was cqrlog when in fact it simply was the first to suffer from the other problems. It's nice to have a happy system again.
