Lightbulb New installation of Ubuntu 15.10 64 Bit error messages - no possibility anymore to install new software packages or OS Updates


Hello Linux-Users,

first a Merry Christmas and a happy and wonderful new year 2016.

After new installation of Ubuntu 15.10 and a lot of software packages there came some error messages, which I've all enclosed in the attachment with shortcuts.

It would be great if you could help me, e.g. with some commands for the terminal, to solve my instalation problem. Since the error messages I can't install any kind of software packages from the software center or make the daily updates for my OS.

Thanks a lot in advance and if you have problems with the German - English translations please use Google Translate or ask to me, what you need to know.

Thanks a lot for your efforts in advance,

alfreditoelloco, a great new fan of Linux Ubuntu

Hi:

Maybe our German speaking members can help you in that area.
I'm sorry my German is very rusty.

If you can't install any software using Synaptic Package Manager or the Software Center it could be that there was a problem with the installation process.
Depending on where you downloaded Ubuntu may play a part on the install.

Did you md5 the .iso file?
In other words did you check the integrity of the file?

It's very hard to read screenshots, especially if I want to see several images at the same time. Furthermore, one of the screenshots doesn't show the entire text, and it seems that the missing part has crucial information about a file that can't be overwritten.

You should be able to copy the text and paste it in the browser window, taking care to put it between code tags (see my signature for instructions).

The last screenshot shows shell interaction. You can turn that into English by entering LANG=C, then repeating the failed commands.

From what I can gather:
  1. The German error messages are really hard to understand, even though it's my mother tongue
  2. A version of some software called Epiphany seems to be installed which conflicts with other software

I'm interested in seeing what the error messages say. However; I really think it's a bad install.

Hi...

Yes, if you could supply as much in English as possible, that would be helpful.

Regards...

Screenshot 1: New applications can't be installed, since there is a problem with already installed applications. Do you want to solve the problem now?

Screenshot 2: Package operation failed. Installing or removing a software package failed.

Screenshot 3: Same as 2. Some lines in the output are truncated but seem to contain relevant information.

Screenshot 4 is all English

Screenshot 5: The first three commands are user errors. The last command says "The following packages have unresolved dependencies: kde-telepathy-minimal depends on kde-config-telepathy-accounts > 15.04.0 but won't be installed". Same for unity-scope-gdrive and account-plugin-google.

Failure to be able to install or remove pkgs might not be user errors. If op didn't use elevated privileges than yes, it would be operator error.
-::-It's possible that the package management system is missing lib's or possibly broken.-::-

-::-Until the dependencies are met the installation (what you were trying to install first) will not work.-::-
-kde-telepathy-minimal depends on kde-config-telepathy-accounts

What was the first application that you were trying to install after your fresh installation?

Is Synaptic Package Manager working at all?

I read through the Known Issues and didn't find anything close to what you have going on.

Did you check the integrity of the .iso file before you burned it to CD/DVD?

What version of the kernel are you running with Ubuntu 15.10?

There is a bug with either kernel 4.1 or 4.2:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/68935...ing-with-15-10

Other things to think about and try:-

You may have something cached and can't get rid of it. Try:
Code:
sudo apt-get clean
Are you getting "failed to fetch" when you try to run apt-get update?

If you still can't update your system post the output of:
Code:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list
ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

Hi Ztcoracat,

in the attachment I've included the Output of your recommended terminal commands. I hope this could help you to solve my problem. The first three screenshots are the output. Supplementary I've included 9 sreenshots concerning a tip of a german forum member of ubuntuusers.de with the terminal outputs and also the messages of the failures to update the OS.

Hope the sreenshots are useful.

Kind regards....

Your sources list look ok.

Your Software Manager is complaining:
"Sorry Updater Has Been Unexpectedly finished" In other words closed.

Run these commands one at a time.
Code:
sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
Code:
sudo apt-get update

This Solved Linked should help.

-::-If you don't have the GNOME DE you shouldn't use the epiphany-browser it could be causing confilict with the software you have installed like berndbausch
said.-::-

Did you check the integrity of the .iso file before you did a fresh install?
