I'll see if I can think of a way to automatically fix things, but for anyone with this problem running this command will get libfontconfig back where it belongs.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install fontconfig=2.11.0-6.7+b1 libfontconfig1=2.11.0-6.7+b1 fontconfig-config=2.11.0-6.7

confirming that rolling back the libfontconfig per tim's command allows the adobe reader install to go through.

Can we edit the .pm file to fix this for people who want to update?

So, is there a global solution, do we need to repackage libfontconfig?

Try downgrading to the Debian Stretch version with

Code: Select all

sudo apt install libfontconfig1=2.11.0-6.7+b1

I think the problem is libfontconfig1 library. which recently updated, and then was scaled back. the problem is the 32 bit version of the library, which adobe-reader (acroread) requires is conflicting with the 64 bit version (the 32 bit library and the 64 bit library versions need to match).

at least I think that's the problem.
I can confirm that today's updates which included libfontconfig1 have solved the dependency error that was happening when installing Wine and Adobe Reader.
