i have tried to search on several platforms and the work arounds i have come across are not helping

running dpkg --configure -D 777 memtest86+ got me this:

D000001: ensure_diversions: new, (re)loading
D000001: process queue pkg memtest86+:amd64 queue.len 0 progress 1, try 1
dpkg: error processing package memtest86+ (--configure):
package memtest86+ is already installed and configured
