sometimes you can fix broken packages just by opening Synaptic, then going to Edit in the Menu, and Down to Fix broken packages (at the bottom of the Edit Menu).

Then do it again for luck.
Then try again to reinstall psensors.

Sometimes the Broken packages error is caused by some other package you are removing at the same time, or something you have installed that psensors either needs, or conflicts with.
Highlight (select) psensors in Synaptic, and scroll through the window. The conflicting packages might appear in RED.

If Synaptic can;t fix them you can also try these commands from a Terminal (after closing Synaptic):

Code: Select all

sudo apt update  
sudo apt upgrade   
sudo apt-get -f install
If none of that works you'll have to start looking through the /etc/apt/sources.list Which will need a whole other reply..

You're welcome.
It's nice to feel at least a little useful once in a while :D
