    I installed a .deb I made and I got an error. Now I get "The package (name) needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archieve for it."

    I forgot the command for this. I used to know it, a long time ago.

    Please help me!

    To fix this problem, for anyone who might need to, just open terminal and send this command
    Code:
    su
    alpine
    dpkg --remove--force-remove-reinstreq [COLOR="Red"]PACKAGE NAME OR ID[/COLOR]
