Hey all! I just installed LMDE to a working system, rather than virtual box, and unfortunately I'm still trying to break it. It's a disorder I tell you!
I can't tell if this is by design or unintentional but enabling hadrets PPA seems to break mintUpdate. Keep in mind that nothing has been installed from this PPA, it has just been enabled.
So I enabled the PPA, went to refresh mintUpdate, and tried to install updates. mintUpdate found the updates from this PPA (I know they're from here because 2 minutes before I had just installed previous updates and if I disable it they go away) but when going to install them it asks me to "Please fix broken packages" before quitting.
Of course, I panic and think I broke my system! So I run to Synaptic and tell it to fix broken packages of which they are none. So I reboot and try again. mintUpdate still yells at me to fix the packages. In a stroke of stupidity I disabled the PPA and refreshed to see what would happen and, voila, it works!
Even if mintUpdate can't handle this PPA informing the user that packages are broken and then quitting is undesirable behavior. At the very least I think the window for it should remain open and the error message for this should be changed. If things aren't broken the update shouldn't say they are.
Thoughts on this?
