files list file for package qdbus is missing final newline

Thu Aug 03, 2017 7:05 am

I downloaded a fresh copy of Raspbian today. Everything works fine, except if I try to do a sudo apt-get upgrade.

I get the following error:
dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
files list file for package qdbus is missing final newline

Is the newest Raspbian Image broken?

Is the newest Raspbian Image broken?
No. But it does seem to be susceptible to being incorrectly installed into a microSD card.

It is the 'missing newline' that is the indication of a generic problem with the way the image was written to the microSD card, not the specific package you mention.

Etcher https://etcher.io is thought to be a reliable way of creating a bootable Raspbian image.

See this post for another instance of a similar problem, now resolved: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=189852
