Ubuntu Installation :: Updater Says Error 'Fix Broken Packages First' But No Broken Packages

Apr 24, 2010

I've been trying to fix this problem for quite a few days now and have done a lot of searching on these forums, Linux Mint Forums and some others Google lead me to and have has some success, but am now stuck.I have posted a thread on this same topic on the Linux Mint Forums, but have had no success (if you want check it out at:URL...Originally I received error messages when trying to update involving certain repositories which couldn't be accessed (because they either didn't exist or had been moved) and I hunted these down and changed or removed them.

I have done much searching, etc. and cannot find any broken packages. I have tried many many different commands which have mostly done nothing.I seem to be in a similar boat to this person: URL...

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrades Held Back - Two Packages - Grayed Out And Do Not Upgrade In Upgrade-manager

Mar 29, 2010

I'm running 10.04 and for several days now I get two packages that are grayed out and do not upgrade in upgrade-manager.

If I use the shell and apt-get I get the following message: The following packages have been kept back: firefox-gnome-support update-manager

The system is functioning well, but these 2 packages just linger as I process probably hundreds of lucid upgraded packages.

Debian Configuration :: Jessie Amd64 / Held Pkg And Broken Synaptic?

Jan 30, 2016

I was using Synaptic to remove unwanted sound & audio programs...it seemed to take out other files that were non-related ?

(1) Now apt-get complains about a "Held Package" and doesn't tell me the pkg name.

(2) Synaptic is broken...error..E: The value 'stable-updates' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources

E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

stable-updates isn't even in my sources list. I've purged synaptic, and re-installed but remains broken. When you close error msg synaptic disappears ? Therefore can't use synaptic at all.

(3) apt-get says many packages that were available are no longer available...like one of the main repos has disappeared ?

(4) I put the same repos that are working for my brother who is running Debian Jessie also, but didn't improve the number of missing available packages.

deb [URL] ....

deb [URL] ....

How or why things have gone so wrong from just removing unwanted sound pkgs.

To recap problems...apt-get held pkg....broken synaptic....unavailable pkgs.

Debian :: Can't Upgrade - All Packages Held

Mar 30, 2015

Since I upgraded Gnash: viewtopic.php?f=30&t=115357 I can't upgrade anything. At least I think that's when it started.

In Aptitude, I have 176 "packages being automatically held in their current state", and 47 "packages being held back". When I updated the package list, there was a dozen or so lines that were yellow instead of green, but it ran too fast for me to read. I doubt that is important, but I try to give as much info as possible.

I'm running Debian Wheezy, 7.1.

Ubuntu :: Error Message - 280 Broken Packages

Jun 10, 2010

I am new to linux (ubuntu) and I really like it, but the same day I installed ubuntu in my vaio, it asked me to install the upgrades, and after I did it there is sign in my desktop saying:

An error occurred, please run Package manager from the right click menu or apt-get in a terminal to see what is wrong,
The error message was 'error BrokenCount >0. This usually means that you installed packages with unmet dependencies

So I did some research and use the package manager (it says that I have 280 broken packages) and try to fix broken packages but it did not work. I had to learn how to use the terminal and I did things like apt-get clean all or update upgrade etc but nothing works the message still there.

Distro: Ubuntu 9.10 (partially upgraded to 10.04)

Debian :: Lenny: Error On Fixing Broken Packages?

Aug 25, 2011

I have Lenny in a multi-boot system on a HP Pavilion DV-1000 laptop, and yesterday when I logged in, noticed the red (-) icon on the right of the top panel. Mouse over it gave the message: "An error occurred, please run Package Manager from the right-click menu to see what is ". On doing so, Synaptic came up with "You have 3 broken packages on your system! Use the "Broken" filter to locate them". Selecting "Broken dependencies" resulted in the "base-files", base-passwd", and "dpkg" being listed. All three had "Installed Version" the same as "Latest Version", but marked in red in the check boxes.

Did "Edit"->"Fix Broken Packages" which marked the packages green. Clicking "Apply" gave a summary list: coreutils, gawk, gcc-4.3-base, libacl1, libattr1, libc6, libgcc1, libselinux1, libstdc++6, and izma as the packages that needed to be installed. Clicked "Apply" and got: "E: Internal Error, Could not perform immediate configuration (2) on libc6" A Google search indicated several people had run into this problem, but I could not find one consistent solution that seemed to address the problem completely.

Debian :: Repositories Not Installing - Broken Packages Error

Jun 4, 2015

I've been trying to install a few programs with the basic Debian repositories on my Jessie edition, but I keep getting a "broken packages" error and "cannot be installed" error, and the programs won't install.

I went to other repositories, e.g. Mint and Ubuntu, and with these included in my sources.list file, I was able to install the desired programs.

If the programs are listed in Debian and the dependecies as well, why would they not install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading To 10.04 - Broken System?

Jun 19, 2010

I avoided upgrading to 10.04 when it was initially released because I couldn't afford for anything to go wrong with my computer around exam time. Sure enough, when I decided to upgrade today, the process got about halfway through and then gave me an error and left me with an unbootable system except in a recovery terminal.

In this terminal I discovered that most of the packages the upgrade wanted to configure depended in some way on shared-mime-info or desktop-file-utils. Configuring these with dpkg --configure gives me an error along the lines of:

undefined symbol: g_malloc0_n and an error code of 127. So, dpkg leaves those packages and consequently can't configure many of the subsequent packages in the dist-upgrade.

Ubuntu Installation :: Nfs Mount Broken Since Upgrading To 11.04

Apr 5, 2011

I've just upgraded to the 11.04 beta, everything working fine to start with (apart from not being able to find anything in the new interface!), but now, a few days later, the nfs mounts to my NAS are broken. I've had a quick go at manually mounting; for instance, if I try to mount to /home/Public (where it usually is) it says that the mount point doesn't exist. It's not true, I can see it, and if I test it by trying a mkdir it confirms it. This is a pretty big deal, I've got ALL my stuff on the NAS. I can still see it from my phone and the web interface of the NAS, so I know it's there...Should I just re-install 10.10 and be patient until the final release comes out?

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot Broken After Upgrading To 10.04

Ubuntu :: Constantly Getting "E:Unable To Correct Problems, You Have Held Broken Package"

Oct 23, 2010

I am running 64-bit Lucid; would running 64 bit be the problem? Anyway, A few of the packages I've been trying to install include Wine 1.3 and a proprietary ATI FGLRX graphics driver for my Laptop's Radeon 4250 graphics card. Many other things I try to install from the Synaptics Package Manager (or anywhere, including the Ubuntu Software Centre) come up with the "E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken package" as well. It is very frustrating and it is a very vague error. Is it my 64 bit Ubuntu or is it already installed packages that are broken...?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From 9.X To 10.2 Crashed - Alloc Magic Is Broken

Aug 25, 2010

I was upgrading from 9.X (can't remember what X is) to I believe it was 10.2 (ok, this happened over a month ago and I just haven't had the time to run after it), and lost power. Obviously doesn't sound good, right? Now when I boot I get the message "alloc magic is broken at 0xaff2c150". I have no idea if this error message is indicative of the whole problem, or what, but I can't get back to my system. I would really rather not lose my work.

Ubuntu Installation :: Broken Packages In Synaptic

May 7, 2010

During my recent upgrade from 8.04 to 10.04, I got a few error messages concerning the flashplugin-nonfree not installing correctly. A user named carlee helped me get flash working over on the absolute beginner forum, but I've got a related problem still unresolved.Update manager is convinced that my perfectly working flash installation is broken, and insists I update it.However, the update fails every time, telling me E: flashplugin-nonfree: Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should reinstall it before attempting a removal.

Opening synaptic, I cannot select the reinstall option for the plugin. Removal and complete removal are my only options, and both give the above error. More problematic, I cannot de-select the flash plugin entirely. It MUST be part of any other package update through synaptic (if I wanted to re-install avant window navigator, for example). And since the flash removal operation fails, synaptic is effectively non-operational.How can I convince my update manager that my fully operational flash is just fine the way it is?

Ubuntu Installation :: OpenOffice And QuickStarter - Broken Packages

Feb 5, 2011

Update Manager tells me it has updates. So I close what I am doing with VirtualBox and a Windows Client and I tell the Update Manager to go ahead. But it stops, says I've got OpenOffice and QuickStarter both running. Not so, at last not to my knowledge. I try again, and it tells me I have a broken package, and to use the 'Broken' filter to find it. Where is the 'Broken' filter? And even if I work that out, what should I do about a "broken" package? So I look online. Only references to "Broken" packages are with respect to Windows. Windows is a shut down client, and VirtualBox has been shut down.

So I try the recovery mode on a reboot. This reports I have 15 broken packages, all to do with OpenOffice. I select Fix Broken Packages, and it keep stopping to tell me that OpenOffice and QuickStarter are both running, and I need to deal with that. How? A restart and effort to fix broken packages did no good. I look online again, and this time I run down where someone writes you can follow a link, and what you get there will do the trick. Only the link goes nowhere, so it has been moved or deleted.

Ubuntu Installation :: Could Not Determine The Upgrade/broken Packages?

Now Ubuntu won't restart the upgrade or install the packages already downloaded; it tells me it "Could not determine the upgrade" and that unresolvable problems occurred, caused by held packages. How can I reset things to restart the upgrade?
