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...

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

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 Multimedia :: Install Gnome On Testing - Broken Packages

Sep 12, 2015

I'm on Debian testing and every time I try to install Gnome I get this:

Code: Select all# alexandernst at stupidbox in ~ [18:51:07]
$ LC_ALL=C sudo tasksel install gnome-desktop --new-install
tasksel: apt-get failed (100)

I tried installing it manually:

Code: Select all# alexandernst at stupidbox in ~ [18:51:35]
$ LC_ALL=C sudo apt-get install gnome                     
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done

[Code] ....

Is this a problem in Debian repos (held packages) or I'm actually doing something wrong?

Ubuntu :: Installation Broken After Trying To Install Proprietary GPU Driver?

Jul 19, 2011

My laptop runs really hot and after reading a few threads around the forum I came across one that said it was because of the fact that ubuntu comes with an open source driver.All you have to do is update to the proprietary driver and everything is fixed. So I went to the menu and looked for the driver. I honestly didn't check if the one that was found was compatible with my graphics card, I just assumed that the one that it found was the right one. I installed it and restarted and ubuntu wouldn't load. It goes through the initial load but when it comes time to bring up the login page, it stays black and never advances. I assumed that this was a result of an incorrect driver. Again, I turned to the forums and found that other people had this problem. So I grabbed my trusty live CD and tried to load up a live session and remove the config file that points to the driverThe live CD wouldn't load. Same thing for recovery mode. It gets to a certain point and stops. This link is an image to where the boot stops:

Ubuntu :: Cannot Remove Broken Packages / Fix It?

Jul 6, 2010

Last night I was installing gbrainy and while it was installing I started a fullscreen game on accident. Fullscreen games cause crashes on my intel integrated graphics (an unrelated issue) and while gbrainy was in the process of installing my computer crashed. So I had to restart. When I restarted I knew I would see broken packages so I did code...

I've tried just about everything to resolve the broken packages but I can't fix them. Does anyone have any idea what I can do to fix this?

Ubuntu :: Following Packages Are Broken - Libmagick10

Jan 15, 2010

I've been getting the following for a few weeks now.

The following packages are BROKEN:
1 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 4027kB of archives. After unpacking 65.5kB will be used.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libmagick10: Depends: libdjvulibre21 (>= 3.5.20) which is a virtual package.
Depends: libgraphviz4 (>= 2.20.0) but 2.16-3ubuntu2 is installed.
Depends: libopenexr6 (>= 1.6.1) which is a virtual package.
Running Kubuntu (Hardy Heron, KDE 3.5.10)

I've tried following the suggestion aptitude offered of downgrading it, but it didn't help. I've tried removing it altogether, but some slightly important packages need it (e.g. kubuntu-desktop or dolphin). I've tried installing the missing dependencies, but they weren't in the repository.

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 :: Repairing Broken Packages Without Internet

May 13, 2010

I forgot that Python is actually essential to Gnome and wanted to update to 3.1, and didn't realize my mistake until some of Gnome had been removed, then I Ctrl+C'd out. Now I can't even connect to the internet to repair my broken packages. I'm out of town for Mother's Day, but in the car it occured to me that I should have tried my Live CD.

As a side issue, is it alright to install more than one version of Python? I'm guessing so, so long as I keep track of which one I'm calling. I used apt-cdrom to update my sources.list appropriately so I could apt-get from the Live CD, but apt complained about locales. Now sources.list has strangely lost the cdrom line, but I'll put it back when I next boot to repair mode.

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.

Ubuntu :: Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10 Fails - Broken Packages

Oct 12, 2010

I was updating from 10.04 to 10.10 (was updating through update manager) after some time I got following message:

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. When I tried to run the command

ubuntu-bug update-manager
as above message says I got error

The problem cannot be reported:
This is not a genuine Ubuntu package

Following are the files in /etc/apts/sources.list
Then there are some files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d
their contents are
lucid-partner.list ---->http://paste.ubuntu.com/511417/
medibuntu.list.distUpgrade---- ------->http://paste.ubuntu.com/511422/

What should I be checking now?
