In chapter 5. The Debian package management system on page 141:

At the end of section 5.3.2, I claim that dpkg does not report an error when asked to configure an already configured package. In fact, dpkg does report an error:

~# dpkg --configure postfix                                                                                                                                [300]
dpkg: error processing postfix (--configure):
package postfix is already installed and configured
Errors were encountered while processing:
postfix

Feedback

John Vacca: This excellent book has done an excellent job of targeting people familiar with Unix who are looking to understand what makes Debian different, and how to best put Debian's paradigms and tools to use. In other words, this book is intended to be a reference for the Debian system, as well as a guide for those that want to go further with the system.
