Note: My computer is working fine without any problem and booting normal. I can use my laptop but the main problem is that I can't install, remove or fix any packages.

Did you read the error message? It says there are errors in `/etc/default/grub`, thus it's a duplicate to this question: [cannot remove linux image with sudo apt autoremove](

@ArturMeinild Finally I solved this problem in another way. I find all file name containing `linux-image-5.11.0-41-generic` and deleted it.

@ArturMeinild I deleted all file containing `linux-image-5.11.0-41-generic` on `/var/lib/dpkg/info` Is everything fine Or I did wrong? please reply!

@Kheersagarpatel It's generally a bad practice to manually remove files from `/var/lib/dpkg/info`. It's fine for now, but in future it will definitely destroy your system.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
