Can not update

Postby rommel1234 on Sat Apr 16, 2011 6:20 am

I have just installed LMDE and I try to use Update Manager to install Updates. But it just tell me that "Could not apply changes Fix broken packages first"
I have no idea about it. Can someone tell how to fix it? :D

Launch synaptic, go to custom filters (bottom left) > broken (top left) work out what is broken.

Most likely you do not have any broken packages just get the usual error we used to get with older verions of MintUpdate.
If you upgrade MintUpdate then re-launch it, the message will go away :)

the easiest fix: open a terminal and

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