I am a total ignorant about Linux, but I am slowly learning. But today I have two problems that are way beyond my reach. Please help! My livelihood depends on it.
A couple of months ago we had an unexpected electricity outage in my home and my computer was on while the power went and came over and over in a short period of time. The computer restarted automatically and partially several times and since then I cannot update packages or anything through the updated program.
I tried to fix it but I get this:
E:The package xserver-xorg-core needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
The machine otherwise seems to work well and I was too busy to dive into research like now in order to fix it.
I am trying to install Davinci Resolve 16 basic free version software but once I did, it says I need to update my graphics card.
The program comes with a pdf how to install document and has detailed instructions about updating graphics drivers and such. But I cannot proceed.
My system info from the inxi comand is

Thanks in advance
