Question Problems updating Zorin.


I am having a Problem updating. This is the Message I get. "The installation could have failed because of an error in the corresponding software package or it was cancelled in an unfriendly way. You have to repair this before you can install or remove any further software."

I do not know how to make the Repair. Any Help is appreciated.

It would probably help if you indicated what software you are trying to install, what method you are using to do so and the release version of Zorin you are using.

zorin is ubuntu based and thus uses apt.
you can search ubuntu and debian forums for how to repair a broken update process and/or broken packet management and fix it with command line tools.

Iappreciate all of the Feedback. The Reason I posted my Question here on the Linux Forum, is that I thought this was the Place to ask questions so I do not have to search all over Creation for the Answer.
Thanks again.

I posted my Question here on the Linux Forum
This is just one of many Linux forums and is not the center of the Linux universe. The suggestion above to search Ubuntu forums is based on the fact that Zorin is derived from Ubuntu and you would probably get input from people more familiar with your system. Not knowing what software you were trying to install or what you tried to install earlier or how you did it, there's not much anyone here or at other forums can do to help. Someone familiar with Zorin/Ubuntu might be able to tell you how to make the repair if you told us what you were doing that needs repairing.
