I have been trying to update LMDE and it Keeps telling me ERROR Fix Broken Packages....
I first ran the Package Manager and told it to Fix Broken Packages, that did nothing...
I ran "apt update" and that didnt do anything, I then found this on line "sudo apt-get upgrade" and it ran for about 30 min and then I restarted the Laptop.
But still I am getting this Error....
What am I not doing correctly?
sudo apt-get install -f && sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

I have done your solution on two desktops today and it is long winded and not a quick fix but both are now up to date with packages lets hope they stay that way

I didn't realize it was going to clean out and upgrade every package in the system and with the problem as it was it would not upgrade through synaptic, it gave error messages. So it would seem your solution is spot on
Thank you very much.
Maybe this should get marked up as Solved now.
I am amazed there are not more posts about this subject, unless it doesn't do it to all computers after install.
