  1. Downgrade the following packages
    cd /tmp
    wget http://ftp.halifax.rwth-aachen.de/ubuntu//pool/main/n/newt/libnewt0.52_0.52.11-2ubuntu8_amd64.deb
    wget http://ftp.halifax.rwth-aachen.de/ubuntu//pool/main/n/newt/whiptail_0.52.11-2ubuntu8_amd64.deb
    wget http://ftp.halifax.rwth-aachen.de/ubuntu//pool/main/p/popt/libpopt0_1.16-1_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libnewt0.52_0.52.11-2ubuntu8_amd64.deb whiptail_0.52.11-2ubuntu8_amd64.deb libpopt0_1.16-1_amd64.deb
