ttf-mscorefonts-installer fails to install on update [ Solved ]

Post by danielson on Fri Dec 30, 2016 10:52 am

This is the second time i've noticed it.
Screenshot of error message while updating ChaletOS just after initial installation.
ttf-mscorefonts-installer

A pop-up window will eventually show up again on reboot but clicking on install fails to do just that.

Update: kind of "solved" since removing it resolved the alert issue.

That's kind of a solution. But if you do want to keep the mscorefonts, then here you will find Richard Elkins presented a working solution.

And just in case the above link ever dies, here's what he suggests (credit goes to Richard Elkins):
Code:
sudo apt-get -y remove --purge ttf-mscorefonts-installer
wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/contrib/m/msttcorefonts/ttf-mscorefonts-installer_3.6_all.deb -P ~/Downloads
sudo apt install ~/Downloads/ttf-mscorefonts-installer_3.6_all.deb
