I've seen this error before if the Asterisk was disabled: go to the web admin page (type your core's IP in a browser) and from the upper menu, choose wizard / devices / core and see if the 'Asterisk' check-box is checked. Once I've checked it again, at the next reload, the error disappeared. But it might be another reason for it, too. Forum Thread
maybe this will do the trick
- Clean apt-get:
- Go to /var/lib/apt/lists and do
mv lock lock.old.
- then , rerun the installer.

- Do sudo apt-get install arping before starting the LMCE installer, reboot first and make sure you are still connected to the net.

SPDIF output only gives sound with Dolby Digital (no PCM)
Verify your mixer settings with e.g. "kmixer". Dolby Digital is not affected by the volume setting as it uses "ac3 passthrough".
