dpkg error:

/var/lib/dpkg/info/XXX.postrm: 24: update-inetd: not found dpkg: warning - old post-removal script returned error exit status 127 dpkg - trying script from the new package instead … /var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/postrm: /var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/postrm: 24: update-inetd: not found dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/XXX.deb (–unpack): subprocess new post-removal script returned error exit status 127 /var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/postrm: /var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/postrm: 24: update-inetd: not found dpkg: error while cleaning up: subprocess post-removal script returned error exit status 127 Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/XXX.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

A dirty workaround for such cases to let return true:

cd /usr/sbin mv update-inetd update-inetd.save ln -s /bin/true update-inetd
