Thank you for taking the time to review my issue.
This is the problem that I am experiencing:
After installing Linux Mint Debian Edition 64bit (fresh install) I click on the Update Icon in the panel to install the current updates. The Update Manager opens and I see the available updates, I accept the recommended updates and select "Install Updates" and it appears to start but after just a few seconds I am presented with the following error: "Could not apply changes! Fix broken packages first."
As you can see from the image, I have resorted to logging in as Superuser to address this problem as Regular user was ineffective. However, being Superuser didn't solve anything either. (Not that I really expected it to, but I'll try just about anything at this point.)
I am really at a loss here.
I have the log file of the failed attempt to update and if necessary I can add it however, it amounts to a gazillion lines of text so, I will wait until it is requested before I provide (copy/paste) it.
This is a summary of my computer: Processor
- AMD Athlon 64 3500+Memory
- 2061 megsKernel
- Linux 2.6.32-5 amd64 (x86_64)HDD's
- /dev/sda/ WD 40gig. with M$ Windows XP installed
/dev/sdb/ IBM 41gig. with Linux Mint 10 32bit ver.
/dev/sdc/ WD 160gig. SATA on 2nd. RAID port (this is the drive that I am currently on.)
Thank you in advance for your help with this issue.
