hi :)
i moved your post into a separate topic because i believe that you have in there more than one issue.
the output you gave us is the full content of inxi -Sr?
can you also please provide the output of
Code: Select all
cat /etc/apt/sources.list


we will go from there

i have edit my sources.list to

priasukses@priasukses:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import

priasukses@priasukses:~$ inxi -Sr
System: Host priasukses Kernel 2.6.38-2-686 i686 (32 bit) Distro Linux Mint Debian Edition

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bimsebasse/cin ... ras/ubuntu precise main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/bimsebasse/cin ... ras/ubuntu precise main

you went ahead and now it's harder :P

1- replace all your sources.list with
Code: Select all
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia testing main non-free

(the ones you are using are missing 2 repos: security and multimedia)

2- delete the ppa cinnamon-extras: it's not maintained anymore and the repo is closed.

3- after 1. and 2. do
Code: Select all
apt update && apt dist-upgrade
it should (post the output)

I never try LMDE or any debian base distro , but from the output of inxi -Sr i can say how to edit source list is :
Code: Select all
 sudo gedit  /etc/apt/sources.list


i don't know if this file exist ( /etc/apt/sources.list.d ), but you can try :
Code: Select all
 sudo gedit  /etc/apt/sources.list.d

Done, thanks a lot for the guidance actually it should be :

Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/bimsebasse-cinnamonextras.list


and problem solved... :D
