Problem installing dpkg 1.19.0.5


(Skarndk) #1

I’m in the process of setting up an environment for KaiOs development. One of the steps is to install Make using dpkg.


When I try to install dpkg through brew this happens:



And when I proceed to install the Make deb-file I get this error:

dpkg: error: failed to open package info file '/usr/local/var/lib/dpkg/status' for reading: No such file or directory


So far I have tried:
*Reinstalling brew
*Reinstalling dpkg
*unpack the deb-file manually, though I am not sure where to manually paste the files.
*I have also tried to find an alternative deb-file installer - but then my head exploded.

Hope you can help me out. Cheers.

What do you run to install the make deb-file?
