    I have been running antiX-17.4.1_x64-full Helen Keller 28 March 2019 with kernel vmlinuz-5.0.9-antix.1-amd64-smp
    I wanted to run testing to see if it runs smoother on this Lenovo ideapad 320-15ast.
    I changed my source lists in /etc/apt then ran apt-get update followed by apt-get dist-upgrade.
    I didn’t see anything that would cause problems, so continued.
    The upgrade quit with the following:
    [code]
    Extracting templates from packages: 100%
    Preconfiguring packages …
    setting xserver-xorg-legacy/xwrapper/allowed_users from configuration file
    dpkg: eudev: dependency problems, but removing anyway as you requested:
    ceni depends on udev | eudev; however:
    Package udev is not installed.
    Package eudev which provides udev is to be removed.
    Package eudev is to be removed.
    bluez depends on udev; however:
    Package udev is not installed.
    Package eudev which provides udev is to be removed.
    midisport-firmware depends on udev; however:
    Package udev is not installed.
    Package eudev which provides udev is to be removed.
    xserver-xorg-core depends on udev (>= 149); however:
    Package udev is not installed.
    Package eudev which provides udev is to be removed.
    udisks2 depends on udev; however:
    Package udev is not installed.
    Package eudev which provides udev is to be removed.
    ceni depends on udev | eudev; however:
    Package udev is not installed.
    Package eudev which provides udev is to be removed.
    Package eudev is to be removed.
    libsane:amd64 depends on udev | makedev; however:
    Package udev is not installed.
    Package eudev which provides udev is to be removed.
    Package makedev is not installed.
    initramfs-tools-core depends on udev; however:
    Package udev is not installed.
    Package eudev which provides udev is to be removed.

    (Reading database … 150266 files and directories currently installed.)
    Removing eudev (232:3.2.7.3) …
    No udevd found running; none killed.
    dpkg: error processing package eudev (–remove):
    subprocess installed pre-removal script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    eudev
    [/code]

    Now I can boot into antiX, but don’t have X.
    Is there a way to repair this, or will I have to do fresh install?
    Thanks

    Can you now reinstall the eudev package?
    If so, restoring that package might resolve the problem.
    After reinstalling eudev, one or more additional upgrade or dist-upgrade operations might be required to fully fit all the jigsaw puzzle pieces into place.

    Yes, I saw that and did try to install eudev, but apt said it was already installed, so removed it, and then installed it (eudev).
    Did an apt-get update and it completed, so then tried the apt-get dist-upgrade, and got back to original problem.
    btw- apt first said to run apt –fix-broken install before I ran the apt-get update. That completed so then ran apt-get upgrade
