Problems upgrading linux-xenial-root-next-cubox-i

Recommended Posts

I've been upgrading to the latest nightly mainline kernel every couple of weeks or so and had a problem today whilst updating linux-xenial-root-next-cubox-i


dpkg output throws an error :

This happens on both my cubox-i's. I tried to move brcm_patchram_plus but it still throws out the error. Any ideas ?!

Still getting the error, is it safe to remove armbian-tools-xenial  for now or is it needed ?
