dpkg: error processing package javascript-common

Date posted : 05/04/2019

When we installed VestaCP on a Ubuntu 18.04 system, we ran into this below error.

Setting up javascript-common (11) ...
dpkg: error processing package javascript-common (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

In order to resolve this error, we need to clean up this package.

apt-get --purge remove javascript-common

We need to use purge option to delete the files completely. That solves the issue.

Thanks for using pheonix solutions.
