    Intel released 1.0.7 graphics installer today, I went to, downloaded deb file and updated my existing installer. While installing drivers it stuck at commiting something (Looks like kernel version )

    It was stuck for like 5 minute, laptop fan started running at full speed and laptop was overheating so I pressed ctrl+c and rebooted using sudo poweroff.
    Now I tried instlling it agiain and I am getting this error.

    Should I force install them?

    Intel websites clearly says
    Known Issues

    WARNING: Attempting to "force" package upgrades may break your OS installation, requiring a re-install or other time-intensive remedies (requiring a high level of expertise). Do not forcibly upgrade packages!

    Hi - In order to install a kernel module for your kernel, the installer first has to build one for you: That was what was going on when you interrupted it. If you'd left it for a few more minutes it would have completed.

    You should be able to fix things by running either the dpkg configure command in your output there, or by running apt-get -f install (that's not a force command, by the way: it's a fix command).

    What's happened is you've interrupted dpkg (the package installer/helper) while it was in the middle of
    installing the new kernel module package, so it's left with a broken package. Unless you've been very
    unlucky, the commands mentioned above should be able to clean up fine for you, after which you can run
    the installer again (or not, if you so choose).
