trying to update my packages today and hit this:
linux-firmware 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. Need to get 153 MB of archives. After this operation, 668 MB of additional disk space will be used. Get:1 http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports hirsute/main arm64 linux-firmware all 1.195 [153 MB] Fetched 153 MB in 25s (6,163 kB/s) Selecting previously unselected package linux-firmware. (Reading database ... 193611 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack .../linux-firmware_1.195_all.deb ... Unpacking linux-firmware (1.195) ... dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-firmware_1.195_all.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite '/lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43455-sdio.clm_blob', which is also in package linux-firmware-raspi2 3-0ubuntu2 Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-firmware_1.195_all.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Not sure what the best course of action is here. I tried a dpkg --reconfigure, forcibly uninstalled linux-firmware with apt remove --purge / clean but no avail. Reinstalling still encounters the same error.
Reluctant to remove /lib/firmware/brcm…blob or the raspi firmware package.
any suggestions? thanks!
edit: let me know if this should be reported elsewhere and I will file a bug. Might be fallout from a failed update yesterday.
