I keep having an error installing / updating / basically doing anything that concerns packages. I am trying to get an I2C library going and I can't get sudo-apt-get install i2c-tools to work from a failing dpkg.
The error code I am getting is:
dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting: files list for package 'libcap2:armf' is missing final newline e: sub-process /user/bin/dpkg return an error code (2)
Whenever I try sudo apt-get remove libcap2:armf (or libcap2-bin) it begins, but when I select Y to complete it throws up a dpkg error for libcap2:armf... I can't remove it all the way because whatever it's doing is dependent on this?
Is there any way to recover from this? Otherwise I have to move my pi to a fresh OS and reconfigure it all (as I unfortunately did not take an established backup).
