Linux Mint 18.2 Filezilla installation stops at 50%

Post by germaineman » Tue Dec 12, 2017 12:51 pm

My setup is Linux Mint 18.2
KDE Plasma Version 5.8.8, KDE Framework version 5.36.0, Qt Version 5.6.1
Kernel Version 4.4.0-66-generic
OS type 64-bit
I open the Software Manager and find Filezilla. Click on Install. The progress bar gets up to 50% and there installation stops. The Software Managers shows: not installed
Any suggestion what might be the problem?
Can anybody help me how I may be able to install Filezilla
Thanks

That's strange - But in any event try this in a terminal.

Code: Select all

sudo apt install filezilla
If that does not work please post any error message it spits out.

Thank you for your suggestion. I get the following message:
filezilla : Depends: libgnutls30 (>= 3.5.3) but 3.4.10-4ubuntu1.3 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages

Anything I could do to correct this?

you can try this in a terminal

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --configure -a
after that completes run this

Code: Select all

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
When that is finished try installing filezilla again.
