Try

rm /etc/subuid.2456
apt purge speech-dispatcher

If that doesn't work post the full error message and the output of

stat /proc /etc

Re: Package speech-dispatcher cannot be properly removed.

I found solution.

sudo sed -i '/speech-dispatcher/d' /etc/passwd

After this cmd I can remove this package.

PS: Thank You for help.

Re: Package speech-dispatcher cannot be properly removed.

I think there might be an underlying problem not addressed by that workaround. Can we see the findmnt output? It will show if everything's mounted correctly.

Re: Package speech-dispatcher cannot be properly removed.

I think it something to do with how devuan live iso create user(s) in system. Because i cannot use "userdel" command (always something lock without possibility unlock it or delete *.lock) and /etc/subuid have "devuan" string and not my username. Maybe I`m wrong.

Re: Package speech-dispatcher cannot be properly removed.

Everything looks normal to me. Not sure what's going on there.

Re: Package speech-dispatcher cannot be properly removed.

Damn. I found out what created all this mess. Just one word. "APPARMOR". First time I`m see apparmor vs apt conflict.

sudo aa-disable /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.userdel ; sudo apt purge -y speech-dispatcher ; sudo aa-enforce /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.userdel ; sudo apt -y autoremove
