Can't install updates!!

Postby Zach99 on Fri Aug 12, 2011 12:14 am

I have a fresh install of LMDE and when I try to install the myriad of updates available, I get a "Please fix broken packages" error message. So I run synaptic and tell it to fix the broken packages. It gives me the "dependency issues resolved" mmessage, but I still get the error message when I try to upgrade. The last time this happened, I had to uncheck the packages that were 0B in size. I did that but I am still getting the same error message. Any ideas?

Open a terminal, and try:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install -f

If that works, proceed to:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

You might need to do some of these steps more than once. Please post output here if still stuck.
