Update Manager error message

Postby Elderwuss on Sun Mar 27, 2011 8:58 pm

The update manager stops with an error box: Could not apply changes! Fix broken packages first.

This is a new installation of LMDE and first attempt with update manager.

Code: Select all
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get -f install


If neither of the above commands report any broken packages that must be fixed, try updating from within a terminal:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Thank you Vincent! The second solution was by me OK.
