It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
This is somewhat difficult to answer since you only gave code, and you did not explain what you are trying to accomplish.
But it seems you're trying to install Transmission from a downloaded
If you have an Internet connection:
Then you can finish the installation by running:
Or, you can start over by removing the package you half-installed:
And then install it normally, in the Software Center or by running:
If you have an Internet connection, but already tried that and it didn't work:
If you tried running
If you already ran that or running it didn't help, it's likely that you don't have the right repository component enabled. Transmission is in Universe.
To enable Universe, see:
If you don't have an Internet connection:
One of the most common reasons people manually download and attempt to install
That would be somewhat weird here, since Transmission is a bittorrent program, and there are hardly any uses of it, without an Internet connection!
But, if that's your situation, then you'll have to resolve the dependencies yourself. There are two problems:
Making sure to get the correct version (the version that corresponds to whatever version of
You can get all those packages here on Launchpad. Assuming you're trying to install a version intended for your Ubuntu release (which, as I said, is recommended), find your Ubuntu release, expand the version number you want, and a list of all Transmission packages appears.
But you should really just install it using Ubuntu's package manager.
For future package installations:
If you must install software while not connected to the Internet, you can simulate installation to see what packages you'd also need to install as dependencies. For example:
This is a handy tool. However, while
Of course, that can happen when you install software normally when connected to the Internet, too. The difference, though, is that when you're connected to the Internet, if the wrong software gets installed, you can usually fix it pretty easily because you're connected to the Internet can can easily install additional packages.
Another helpful resource is the Ubuntu package directory. You can search for packages, and when you view a package, you're informed of its dependencies, including dependencies that can be satisfied by more than one package. For example,
(As well as a bunch of other useful information.)
