Fix for "Errors were encountered while processing: zoneminder E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)"

I use a program called Zoneminder to view and capture images from my back door. I have been running it on my Ubuntu server, but; Zonminder broke after I upgraded my server to 12.04. After doing a few searches it turned out to be a simple fix,it was in a post at Ubuntu Forums.

sudo apt-get purge zoneminder
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install zoneminder
After reconfiguring Zoneminder it has ran perfectly. Here is the exciting view from my back door.
