Hi run these commands you can replace the name of the .deb life if you want to install 7.15

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --force-overwrite -i gimx_8.0-1_armhf.deb

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install -f

I have the same error, but entering these commands does not help and writes: dpkg: error: cannot access archive 'gimx_8.0-1_armhf.deb': No such file or directory

you have to write name of package you want to install. In your case name is probably different thus message that there's no file like that.
