    Hello Greg Mazarakis. Thank you for writing and happy new year. As per online research, it appears to be an apt-get error as found here.

    There seems to be a temprary solution that apparently solves the error code above, but provides a new one. I do not know the same will happen to you.

    This is the command the person on the second post of the previous link has typed
    Code:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/insserv/insserv /sbin/insserv
    Hope it helps and it does not provide you with a new error code. =)

    PS: For better understanding and reading of the topics, please enclose terminal quotes or other command input between [ c o d e ] and [/ c o d e ] (removing spaces inside the brackets, I wrote it like this so forum does not interpret it as the actual BBCode).
