some little errors

some time ago I’m noticing that at the end of an installation or upgrade some errors appear, do not alter the successful outcome of the task, but it bothers me …

code Updating the desktop file MIME type cache…
(3/3) Updating the MIME type database…
Unknown media type in type ‘all/all’
Unknown media type in type ‘all/allfiles’
error: ‘.wh.bash-4.3.024-1’: description file is missing
error: ‘.wh.bash-4.3.024-1’: file list is missing

any idea how to fix them?


The mimetype warnings can be ignored. The .wh files usually are files on the live media saving overlay informations (such as removed files).
If you don’t run your system from a live media try finding those .wh files and removing them.

That is a known mimetype issue.

Just run the following command:

sudo rm /usr/share/mime/packages/kde.xml

And then update the mime cache:

update-mime-database /usr/share/mime
