Package: nagios3-common
Version: 3.0.6-3
Followup-For: Bug #514168

I'm trying to get nagios3 going. In the process of upgrading to 3 and moving from another machine, I needed to remove and start over:

dpkg: error processing nagios3-common (--remove):

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

It's just a bent shell script...
