I got a mintupdate from version 4.6.2 to 4.6.3 and after trying to install it I got these two messages:

Update is complete

Not all changes and updates succeeded.


Second window says:

An error occurred

The following details are provided:

Also, every time I install something from the Software Manager I get a message that packages could not be installed and that I should check my connection. Connection is fine and packages were installed every time regardless of the message. I am running Mint 17 Cinnamon. Software Manager error is also showing in Mint 17 MATE

Hi ninomrki,

Not sure what the problem may be, sometimes these things clear themselves when the repository is completely synced.
but you can try the following and see if it makes any difference.

in a terminal type the following commands one at a time. see what happens.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo dpkg --configure -a

I just ran

Code: Select all

    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
and I got no error this time after following the advice from that thread and going to synaptic and clicking on edit and fix broken packages. Thanks!

Software Manager still gives a message that packages could not be installed even though they were, though. Got any advice for that?

Can you talk me through what you did? I'm having the same problem.

if you are getting this in the first three lines:

Code: Select all

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of lsb-desktop:
 lsb-desktop depends on libjpeg62; however:
  Package libjpeg62:i386 is not installed.
if I understand it correctly, it is saying that is missing libjpeg62:i386 package (it turned out that mine was half installed), open the terminal and type commands one at a time:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libjpeg62:i386
sudo apt-get remove libjpeg62:i386
sudo apt-get install libjpeg62:i386
Then open the Synaptic, click on edit and then fix broken packages, then apply.

Then open terminal and type these commands one at a time:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
If you don't get any errors, that should be it, I hope. Final test will be when more updates come.

Thanks, that's sorted it out.

My error had

Code: Select all

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of lsb-core:

 lsb-core depends on at; however:

  Package at is not installed.
So based on your advice concluded that 'at' wasn't installed properly (didn't realise there was a package called 'at'). Installed it and everything works.

Never mind y'all. I followed someones "Sudo," terminal commands on a similar issue and it cleared up my problem.

Usually I am leery of using the terminal, but it worked slicker than snot on a glass doorknob>>LOL LOL :-)

Although I have absolutely NO IDEA how my Software manager got broken to begin with. I didn't do a thing to cause that, other than to accept all updates presented???!!!
