dpkg: syntax error: unknown group `root' in statoverride file
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)

Every time I try to install, always shown up something like that. Problem in statoverride file. After googling, I find one solution. Stateoverride file was locate in /var/lib/dpkg/statoverride.

[email protected]:~$ more /var/lib/dpkg/statoverride
root Debian-exim 0640 /etc/exim4/passwd.client
hplip root 755 /var/run/hplip

To remove the file use dpkg-statoverride with remove option, but dont forget to backup the file. Use this command to remove the problem :

[email protected]:~$ sudo dpkg-statoverride --remove /var/run/hplip
[email protected]:~$ sudo dpkg-statoverride --remove /etc/exim4/passwd.client

 

Then I try to install again and it work. For me it fix the problem.
