Armv7-eventlircd-osmc install failure

Somehow - don’t know how - I managed to destroy the armv7-eventlircd-osmc package, so I no longer have a working lirc.

When I try to re-install or purge it, I get the message:

package armv7-eventlircd-osmc has not yet been configured.

apt update
apt update
apt install -f
apt install -f armv7-eventlircd-osmc

don’t deliver any results.

Logs are here:

This one did the damage - not a good idea specifying -y

Did you try

sudo apt-get install -f

Thank you so much. I learned that there is a difference between the “apt” and die “apt-get” commands. My believe was that they are the same. Obviously, they are not…

Now my RC is working (-:
