Error install conman-vpn package version conflict


I got an error running

`sudo apt-get install connman-vpn`

error saying

Unzip connman-vpn (1.33-3 + deb9u1) ... dpkg: Error while editing the archive /var/cache/apt/archives/connman-vpn_1.33-3+deb9u1_armhf.deb (--unpack): Attempt to overwrite "/ usr / sbin / connman-vpnd", which is also in package armv7-connman-osmc 1.3.6-2 Errors occurred while editing: /var/cache/apt/archives/connman-vpn_1.33-3+deb9u1_armhf.deb E: Sub-process / usr / bin / dpkg returned an error code (1)

How to solve this?

Thanks T

OSMC has its own connman package that includes connman-vpnd. AFAIK – and I’m happy to be corrected – it’s not currently ready for general use.

Bottom line: you probably can’t install it.

Ok thanks, but how to use the osmc own vpn package?

can I set up a VPN using cli?

sudo systemctl enable connman-vpn.service

not found?


If you using a vpn provider such as private internet access or Nordvpn, then easiest way is with the brian hornsby addon or if you wish to use the cli, then openvpn is already installed.

You need give us more details about your setup, then we can advise further.

Thanks Tom.
