Ubuntu Installation :: Ktorrent Dependencies Broken - Cannot Install

Apr 16, 2011

I have Ktorrent installed via the repositories and its always worked perfectly. Today I ran software update with KPackageKit and it installed updates. It told me that KTorrent had to be removed to continue and without thinking I hit ok. Now my KTorrent is gone. When I try to install it on the terminal with


sudo apt-get install ktorrent

it gives me this error.


$ sudo apt-get install ktorrent
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done


The following packages have unmet dependencies:

ktorrent : Depends: ktorrent-data (= 4.0.3-0ubuntu1) but 4.0.5-3ubuntu1~maverick1~ppa1 is to be installed

E: Broken packages If I remove and reinstall ktorrent-data it doesn't help. build-dep doesn't help. autoremove and then trying to reinstall doesn't help. I'm not running some strange dev version of anything. I have a standard Kubuntu 10.10 amd64 installation and my KDE version is 4.6.2 from the regular repositories. I run updates (standard repositories) almost every day and have never seen anything like this before.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Upgrade - Fails With Broken Dependencies

Apr 30, 2010

I've been trying all morning to update from a working 9.10 to 10.04 and unfortunately every time I try it blocks me.

An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade: E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

This can be caused by:

* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu

* Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu

* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu

If none of this applies, then please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade/ in the bug report.

Restoring original system state

I've uploaded the full apt log to pastebin here:

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade And Broken Dependencies (Samba-Common)

May 13, 2010

A couple of days ago, I upgraded my Kubuntu to Lucid. In this phase, the system reported that it was impossible to upgrade samba-common, and the installation aborted on 90%. Nevertheless everything is working but KPakageKit, which reports:
"There are broken dependecies on your system. Please use an advanced package manage e.g. Synaptic or aptitude to resolve this situation."

Neither "sudo aptitude safe-upgrade" nor "sudo apt-get -f install" solved the problem:
omen@darkstar:~$ sudo aptitude safe-upgrade
kubuntu-desktop .....

So the problem is really samba-common.

Ubuntu :: Places Pull Down Menu / Buttons In File Management Windows Broken By Ktorrent

Mar 12, 2011

Whenever i click on an icon in the Places pull down menu (except Computer, Network, Connect To Server and Search For Files) nothing happens except I get Ktorrent popping up and claiming it cant open the selected Drive or Folder because it is not a valid torrent file. Which is fair enough, 'cos its not a torrent. Its the entry for my Desktop in a pull down menu in my O/S, and it does this even when I haven't been near Ktorrent in the previous hundred clicks of the mouse, or if Ktorrent is not running. If i un-install Ktorrent, the error message changed, but the correct windows did not open when asked from the Places pull down, and the error returns when its re installed- well, tried it once, in a very basic fashion through the software center.

I think the problem has been caused by two containing folders of torrent data files that have become stuck as entrys in the Pllaces menu- cack handed off me folks, was playing with new mouse settings as I was playing with new mouse settings. Problem may also be something to do with the problems I have been having with Ktorrent- it refuses to accept torrent files unless through a magnet link, bringing up the same "parse error- not valid torrent file" error message as comes up from the Places menu, only of course citing the torrent i just tried, when I know for sure the file is valid and operational because Transmission has no problem with it.I really hope someone can help me fix this, as formatting and re-installing will be a real ball ache, as I'm a new user who's spent the last week learning and starting the customization process, and I was just getting to think about backing it all up.System is Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit, Pentium quad core, one 250Gb system drive and another larger drive called storage that appears under Media path both SATA2, no DVD drive as connector is in the post.

Ubuntu :: Packages Update Errors - Broken Dependencies

Mar 12, 2011

I have a computer with 128 ko of RAM (a very old one). I installed yesterday ubuntu 8 because ubuntu 9 requires 512 ko of RAM and was very slow. Now, I have problems to update packages and to install every thing. I changed the sources.list because it seems that links are no more available according to the error messages. (I have put many adresses for ubuntu 9 because I think the kernel is the same not as the kernel for ubuntu 10). But new problems have occurred like "broken dependencies". Now I want to correct, and I don't know how? I'm still a beginner with this OS.

Fedora :: Cannot Start Eclipse - Some Dependencies Broken

Jul 9, 2011

Eclipse cannot start and I can see the following in the log:
java.vendor=Sun Microsystems Inc.
BootLoader constants: OS=linux, ARCH=x86_64, WS=gtk, NL=en_US
Command-line arguments: -os linux -ws gtk -arch x86_64
!ENTRY org.eclipse.osgi 2 0 2011-07-09 15:01:23.881
!MESSAGE One or more bundles are not resolved because the following root constraints are not resolved: .....
and etc. those files are actually in /usr/lib64/eclipse/plugins/ but system cannot find them as I see.

It happened after I played with Eclipse's software configs and broke some dependencies there. After I tried removing and reinstalingl eclipse I notices that /usr/lib64/eclipse files don't change and I have the same broken sortware install configuration. So I deleted the folder usr/lib64/eclipse and reinstalled Eclipse. It didn't work. I restored usr/lib64/eclipse from eclipse~ and now see that error log. What is the way to fix it or probably remove eclipse completely and reinstall that /usr/lib64/eclipse/ becomes as it was by default.

Software :: Broken Dependencies Using Sudo Dpkg -?

Jan 17, 2011

I have a fairly old debian distribution running on the linux Kernel 2.6.18-4-686 and I did something silly which has broken multiple packages. I use the manual package installation command (sudo dpkg -i filename.deb) to install a single package (gcc base) however I did this using the latest version of the package which seems to have broken my GCC package completely and I am unable to compile c++ anymore.

When I now load the Synaptic Package Manager it tells me that I have 10 broken packages and when I use the fix feature it tells me I need to update other packages to fix the depencies (it selects almost every single package on my system to be removed at this point!).

I cant change the system too much because the software packages are set up specifically to run a certain application and I don't want to change anything incase I make it stop working!

So my question is this:

If I go to the synaptic Package Manager and uninstall the broken packages (they are all gcc related), will I be able to use the aptitude command to install GCC again? If so will it automatically install the version of GCC that will work with my system? or will it try and install the latest version and then update the rest of my system?

Slackware :: Script To Detect Orphaned Libraries - Broken Lib Links - Missing Dependencies

Mar 9, 2010

My recent borked upgrade to -current inspired me to try to come up with a way to sanity-check the lib and bin dirs for broken library symlinks (possibly indicating missing libs) and for binaries and libraries that belong to no installed package, as well as missing dependencies.

This script is the result.

I've checked the script results manually, and it appears to be accurate, so I figured I'd post it here for a second opinion, and/or because others may find it useful too. I'm not aware of another popular method of doing this on Slackware, so here it is:

Ubuntu Installation :: Wubi Broken By UNR Install

Dec 14, 2010

wanted to install UNR 10.04 proper, dropping WUBI. I figured I'd move my home folder and installed apps from wubi to the regular partition from inside the wubi install, after installing UNR and it's bootloader on a partition.The Wubi install no longer works, trying to boot it hangs at mounting a no longer existant logical partition. That partition used to be ntfs storage, now becoming the proper UNR partition.Wubi's Grub actually says it's not a NTFS partition anymore and hangs there.Would reinstalling Wubi from Windows (keeping the disks folder) solve anything?Is there anything I can do from Wubi Grub's command line?

Ubuntu Installation :: Version 10.04 Broken During Software Install

Mar 25, 2011

I did a very noobish thing and broke my 10.04 installation and need help to pull it back from the brink. I began an install of LAMP using tasksel. Ignorantly I unchecked two pre selected packages - ubuntu desktop and a print related one whose name I can't recall. During the install I noticed that the installer was merrily uninstalling a whole bunch of stuff. Read later that if you uncheck the preselected options it actually uninstalls them. Perfect. Second foolish action was that in a panic to stop what I thought was a total wipe of my ubuntu installation, I just turned off the computer.

on bootup it first just hung with a black screen. Tried to repair with a live CD but got an 'unrecoverable error' message. Managed to get a bit of life with purging then reinstalling ubuntu-desktop but still hangs on bootup showing the ubuntu symbol and progress bar. So I have accessed via a Grub2 disk and logged in, in a 'low graphics' mode - actually no graphics. am using aptitude to see what the state of things is, but can't get a connection to any repositories. 'Temporary failture resolving '[URL]...etc with [ERROR] Have had a look at /ect/apat/sources.list and it's still all there. But I am basically stumped as to what to do next. Pretty sure most things are still there. And really don't want to do a fresh install. So actually what i need to do is sort out why I don't have a connection anymore.
