apt error after upgrade and 'apt-get -f install' does not sort it out
Greetings. Apt broke with conflicts between some libreoffice packages today after an 'apt-get upgrade'. There were several packages that broke. I restarted and it wouldn't boot up at all because of some error. After a few tries with old kernels I got in and figured out how to upgrade to the new kernel. That seems to have helped but some packages still show the conflict. I would have remembered more about this but I didn't think I'd be here asking for help so I hope that is sufficient. The terminal readout is below. Many thanks.
Some disclosure, My HDD failed last week and I had not got around to installing the nvidia drivers yet in my new install, so the problems on restart might be a combination promlem and may not be all that relevant.
Sometimes you have to read the error messages carefully and do a bit of guesswork to figure out solutions.
The only line that explicitly states what happened is this:
Speaking of which, it's often a good idea to pay careful attention whenever apt wants to remove a package. It can sometimes want to uninstall optional packages that you may actually want to keep.
Finally, while probably not the case here, remember that most errors caused by package conflicts tend to be temporary. Often you just have wait a few days until they get resolved upstream.
