On Raspbian Lite I'm trying to run apt-get upgrade but running into following issue:

Setting up libssl1.0.2:armhf (1.0.2r-1~deb9u1) ...
dpkg: error processing package libssl1.0.2:armhf (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script was killed by signal (Illegal instruction)

So I tried reconfiguring but that also fails.

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo dpkg --configure -a
Setting up libssl1.0.2:armhf (1.0.2r-1~deb9u1) ...
dpkg: error processing package libssl1.0.2:armhf (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script was killed by signal (Illegal instruction)

I tried running apt-get update, clean, reconfigure in a few combinations but always end up with the same issue. So I started suspecting it's the sources - but they look clean.

pi@raspberrypi:/ $ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free rpi
# Uncomment line below then 'apt-get update' to enable 'apt-get source'
#deb-src http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free rpi

Any suggestion what else to check are welcome. This is PI 2B+

It may be possible that your installation list files are broken. This files are downloaded when running sudo apt update. They can be found in /var/lib/apt/lists/*. You could delete and update them. But it is better to do it under control of the package manager. How to do it you can look at Raspberry Pi sudo apt-get update not working.

If it doesn't help you can try to reinstall

rpi ~$ sudo apt --reinstall install libssl1.0.2

and next step more aggressive

rpi ~$ sudo apt --reinstall --fix-broken install libssl1.0.2
  • Tried the solution from the link, than I tried manually removing everything from /var/lib/apt/lists/ and run update & upgrade. Unfortunately I'm getting exactly same error still. – jackrobot Mar 14 at 14:30
  • @jackrobot I have updated the answer. – Ingo Mar 14 at 15:40
  • I think I have found the problem... the issue is not with libssl but with these packages. Openssh-server could be a problem because it's a headless setup. When I will have more time I need to plug this to monitor and try to reinstall them. Thanks for the suggestions Ingo! Errors were encountered while processing: avahi-daemon lighttpd openssh-server – jackrobot Mar 17 at 11:50
