I still do think IPPUSB is the cause of the trouble because it worked fine on Mint 18 which I ha...

After install 'APT problem, please refresh the cache'

Good evening
On a new 19.3 install, I went through the 'maintenance' button and get the following message: "there is an APT problem, please refresh the cache".
I have done so quite a few times and still get this message.
What should I do and mainly how ?

Thanks a lot

New Mint 19.3 : icons cant be moved

Good evening
I just installed a brand new 19.3 on an old Dell and surprisingly the icons cannot be moved and change their places.
I went through all the available commands and could not find the proper command which would allow it if any.
Thanks for the help
