I have been having a problem in installing any software either by the 
update manager & synaptic...After the updates have finished, or packages 
installed via synaptic, I am getting this error message below...

Software updates
Extracting templates from packages: 100%
dpkg: fgets gave an empty string from diversions (i)
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)
A package failed to install.

Trying to recover.

Has anyone had this problem, if so, could you please explain to me the 
fix for it...

Thanks for any help on this matter...
