#283 closed enhancement (outdated)

apt: Exception: Required package ... from ... is a circular reference with a previous dependent

Reported by: maphew Owned by: maphew
Priority: major Component: Package
Version: Keywords: pkg-apt


O:\>apt-dev install apache
to install:
    apache php
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "O:\\bin\", line 1046, in <module>
    __main__.__dict__[command] ()
  File "O:\\bin\", line 150, in install
    install_next(missing.keys (), set([]), set([]))
  File "O:\\bin\", line 169, in install_next
    install_next(dependences, resolved, seen)
  File "O:\\bin\", line 167, in install_next
    'with a previous dependent' % (dep, packagename)
Exception: Required package apache from php is a circular reference with a previous dependent

Solution is to apt --no-deps install ...

Enhancement would be a proper error message instead of a traceback
