Tasksel: aptitude failed (100) in Ubuntu


Recently when I am trying to install LAMP server in Ubuntu with following command I got error saying that “tasksel: aptitude failed (100)

$ tasksel install lamp-server


tasksel: aptitude failed (100)

To resolve this issue I explored couple of forums and got to know this because of not running apt-get update even once.

So I ran apt-get update in my Ubuntu OS and after that lamp-server is installed without any issue.

  1. As i discovered after some fails, you need to get rid of all damaged packages (if any), otherwise you will keep getting error 100
