SSU - 5.2008.43-7 shows 'broken' status after install
 
on my n810 I've tried updating with the new featured version 5.2008.43-7 and everything seems to run smooth; however, after rebooting the 'OS2008 Feature upgrade' is shown in both the 'installed applications' and 'check for updates' section (application manager) :(

The details tab gives me this:

Status : Broken but updateable
Category: system
Installed version: 1:5.2008.43-7
Available version: 1:5.2008.43-7
Download size: 0kb

doing a reinstall gives me an 'unable to update' error. I also tried an 'apt-get -f install' from x-term. still failing with the following error taken from the log:

# -------------------------
Upgrading osso-software-version-rx44 1:5.2008.43-7 to 1:5.2008.43-7
Setting up mce (1.7.23) ...

Errors were encountered while processing:
mce
osso-software-version-rx44
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
# -------------------------

I even followed the suggestions made in this tread but with no success; is there anything that will prevent me from reflashing? please give me some advice...

thanks bun, I appreciate your help but actually what questions me is how to fix this issue (or even try to understand what went wrong) and recover my nit without reflashing; I'd really like to take advantage of the 'seamless update' :) ...if there's no easy solution I'll definitely follow your guide;

thanks again for all your help; unfortunately the steps mentioned earlier by Ropesend didn't work out successfully. as a result I followed the suggestion from qgil and created a new bug report @ https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3943.

so let's wait if anything can be done; in the meantime still hoping for some smart ideas helping me to come over this issue... ;)

What was the error with ropesend's instructions?

Could you try this?
1) get root
2) as root run "/etc/init.d/mce restart" and if it doesn't show any error:
3) dpkg --configure -a

1) 'touch /var/lib/dpkg/available' -> success :p
2) 'apt-get update' -> shows this:
('apt-get -f install' -> see 1st post)

If you are using a non-busybox "ls" it will break. ("ls -Q" in an xterm - if it lists files with quotes, things will break badly - if it gives a usage message, it should be OK.).
