This F.A.Q. contains frequent harmattan terminal errors and warnings meanings.

dpkg: status database area is locked by another process
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory(/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?

It means: status database area is locked by another process
For dummies: another process doing package installation/removal or refreshing packages cache
How to solve:
A (easy). wait until process finished.
B (faster). kill pkgmgrd process
C (stupid). reboot

W: Duplicate sources.list entry
It means: sources list contains duplicate entries
For dummies: you enabled same repository twice or more
How to solve: search in /etc/apt/sources.list.d folder for duplicate entries in all files inside. Remove duplicate lines.

Aegis rejecting [filename]: package '[package name]' already installed from 'com.nokia.maemo' -- not replacing it from unknown origin
It means: package already installed from trusted source, it can't be replaced from unknow origin.
For dummies: you trying to install unsigned package (from untrusted source), but it already installed from trusted one.
How to solve: STOP if you trying to replace system package. You dong wrong. But if package is not a system part, you need to remove package before.

Package [package name]: denied '[origin name]' -- origin '' does not allow it
It means: Package's aegis manifest requires extra credentials, but it can't be allowed by origin
For dummies: You trying to install package which requires extra credentials without using inception/openmode methods.
How to solve: Use Inception/Openmode methods for installing package. If you have no idea how to do it - go away and read instruction before

Reinstallation of [package name] is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.
It means: package cannot be downloaded
For dummies: package installer application can't locate file to install.
How to solve:
A. apt-get update. Probably your package indexes are outdated
B. Check your internet connection.

aegis-loader: Failed loading policy for '[policy name]'
warning, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/available' near line [number] package '[package name]':

It means: restok config malformed
For dummies: aegis configuration malformed. you installed package requires extra credentials without using Inception/Openmode methods
How to solve: change device owner. current one is stupid.

W: Failed to fetch [repository]
W: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

It means: cannot fetch repository packages list
For dummies: Repository host down, moved or unavailable.
How to solve: remove repository entry from sources list

Aegis rejecting [filename]: Could not open debian archive
It means: debian archive can't be opened
For dummies: file does not exists.
How to solve check file path, escape special characters like space, add with backslashes.

Aegis rejecting [filename]: package '[package name]' origin cannot be determined -- signature check failed
It means: cannot get package signature info
For dummies: package origin source is removed or source information malformed
How to solve:
A. Refresh packages list.
B. Restore package source/remove package source properly. Do not disable aegis added sources manually.
C. Do not use two repositories contain same package, if one of repositories untrusted.

W: GPG error : [repository url]
Release: Following signs aren't veryfied because public key isn't avialable: No_PUBKEY [pubkey value]

It means: no installed public key found for signed repositoru
For dummies: repository support pubkey verification as certified source, but pubkey wasn't installed
How to solve: check repository installation notes on repository author's web page.
For example for OpenRepos you should add pubkey as following:
Code:
devel-su
wget -O - http://harmattan.openrepos.net/openrepos.key | apt-key add -
if you have troubles with wget, you can just download
http://harmattan.openrepos.net/openrepos.key
and add it:
Code:
devel-su
apt-key add /path/to/openrepos.key
W: Ignoring Provides line with DepCompareOp for package [packagename]
It means: [packagename] have broken contol file (maybe port from debian?)
For dummies: Installation process ignored some lines from package contol file
How to solve: It is not an error and [packagename] not related to installing package. Just ignore.

Package [packagename]: <for> refers to '[other packagename]::[binary path]', not installed by that package -- ignored
It means: Package have invalid aegis manifest structure, some lines ignored
For dummies: Some credentials requests from aegis manifest for current package can't be allowed, because requested credentials not related to installed package
How to solve: It is not an error and package will work as it should. Just ignore.

dpkg: requested operation requires superuser privileges
It means: dpkg should be launched with root privileges
For dummies: you executing dpkg command as regular user, but it requires root
How to solve: you need to gain root privileges using devel-su or sudo

This will save your day, coderus.
A lot of times.

This thread should get sticky.
Or at least get referenced from a lot of other threads ...

I dont know what you are removing but in terminal remove command is rm, and if you cant remove it with filebox you need to be root.
So here is code.

Code:
devel-su
then write password, defult is: rootme
rm /patch/to/file/filenam.e
Patch to file is where file is, Like: /home/user/
And filename is what you're removing.

Also you can use N9QT to give Filebox access to root and remove with Filebox.
