Angry "Unmet dependencies" problem installing a package with apt-get


Not even sure where to begin describing my problem. Hopefully the attachment I had applied works to show what exactly I am experiencing. It does not seem to interfere or hinder productivity on my machine.

Hopefully there is an intelligent and knowledgable person out there who may be able to help resolve this issue. Thanks for your help and support, it is always much appreciated.

So, have you followed the advice in that message to run
Code:
sudo apt-get -f install
What happened?

Yes I did. I even tried to uninstall, purge, clean, autoclean. Basiclly i tried most of the commands with the -f option. and nothing seemed to fix the problem.

Please provide the complete output of
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -f install
Please no screenshot, copy and paste the text here and use code-tags (highlight the output of the commands and press the #-button in the advanced editor).

Thumbs up Problem Fixed!

ran both commands. Found out the command to use to fix the problem I had. The command is as follows:

sudo apt-get install -f


Just needed to swap install and -f from the command you had given. Now the icon has disappeared and the machine is running "normal" again. Thank you for your time, energy and assistance into this matter. I am forever grateful to you. Have a safe and happy holiday.

Tobi didn't give you that command it was in the screenshot of the first post you made. Even though you have fixed it may I suggest you read through the man pages to get a full explanation of apt-get.

Don't forget to mark this thread as Solved in the thread tools.
