Hi All,

Since some time I have a problem with the installation of the kernel 2.6.32.
The following error is reported:

The following partially installed packages will be configured:
  linux-headers-2.6.32-24-generic linux-headers-generic
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B of archives. After unpacking 0B will be used.

No apport report written because the error message indicates its a
followup error from a previous failure.

I do not know whether this is enough info, but I can provide with what you need.
