Ok, been working this one for awhile now. Clean install of LMDE, go to update manager, it updates the update manager software.
change all the apt lines according to the release notes, tell it to install updates.
Everything downloads, then it gives me the error below
I tell it ok, update stops and it tells me that I have 200 some odd updates, but it gives the above error each time.
Once I removed all the gstreamer items from the software manager thinking that was the problem, then when I updated it told me to rebuild the packages, rebuilt them and the upgrade seemed to go fine...
After restart, instead of the login screen being green, it was blue and when I logged in, it went to a blank screen and that was it, had to turn it off to restart.
Any help is appreciated, this is getting frustrating
