apt-get died unexpectedly segmentation fault
What an exciting title for a post :)
This is purely for me. After starting my Raspberry PI 3, I went to do an update and the "sudo apt-get update" failed with an error that contained "has died unexpectedly" and "segmentation fault".
After many minutes googling and binging I found that this worked :
dpkg -i apt_0.9.7.7+rpi1_armhf.deb
But, I ended up going to "http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/a/apt/" to find a package that existed and that I could actually install without an error.
It is meant to update your "apt-get', but it actually downgraded it. I'm hoping after the update/upgrade, it will update that also.
Hope this helps someone.
