You're right, yad isn't available for 15.04 using the officially Ubuntu repositories. Wily (15.10) has the package. To use the package with Vivid, you need an PPA sudo apt-add-repository ppa:webupd8team/y-ppa-manager sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install yad

Do you really need the 3 version? 4.8 is the current one on my trusty system. If you have an old executable referring to such an old version, try just adding a link to the 4 version. That might work, unless the old exe is using obsolete functions. Assuming you really need the 3 library, maybe one way is to install the 32 bit versions to avoid conflict ...

Repositories serve several purpose : every program from an "official" repository has been validated by canonical. It is thus considered safe for your system (not a malware). repositories allow to notify users when an update is ready. Your system is automatically up to date with new features and security releases. To answer your questions : Not ...

Depending on where you got the package you are currently trying to install, you may have the wrong one - your package needs version (>= 2.42.0) (i.e. newer than 2.42), but the available trusty version is currently 2.39.93. You may have accidentally got a package for Utopic or newer (possibly via a installed PPA), as both Utopic and Vivid have version ...

Try to check on apt-get using : sudo apt-get check It will check for dependencies problems and fixn if your problem persists, try to edit the dpkg status file manually : sudo gedit /var/lib/dpkg/status (You can use vi or nano if you want to) Locate the corrupt package, and remove the whole block that concern it and don't forget to save the file.

The do-release-upgrade script has a --sandbox option which performs the upgrade on an aufs overlay filesystem. This means that all changes are written to a separate filesystem overlaying the original files. Throw away the overlay and you are back with your original filesystem. Disclaimer: I don't have first hand experience with this feature. Regardless of ...

do-release-upgrade will carry out a release upgrade but do-release-upgrade doesn't have a dry run option. But, it does have a --sandbox option. From the point of running in --sandbox mode, any changes made to your system will actually be written to a ramdisk, and reset upon reboot via the magic os Aufs. This lets you test your machine thoroughly in a fully ...

Never mind, I actually just fixed it. What I had to do was outlined in this post: Broken dependencies due to libjackd So I went to /usr/share/doc and then took zlib1g and zlib1g-dev and renamed both with a .old on the back. This allowed me to do my apt-get -f install and things seem to be happy now.

In regards to the broken packages, try installing the same package with aptitude. it will give up less easily, and will attempt to find solutions which may involve modifying other packages. You can also get a list of held packages with dpkg --get-selections | grep hold, which could show you the issue. Otherwise, maybe try installing openjdk and jre: Doing ...

I faced the same problem in debian. there it was tz-data and I fixed it by adding the point release repository to apt and then did apt-get update and apt-get upgrade. I don't know how this is exactly done in Ubuntu (didn't face the problem there) but here is the link of the Debian page

While revisiting this error today, I came upon the solution proposed in this forum post. It turns out that the issue is caused by the cross dependency between several of the codeblocks packages, so the entire install needs to be repaired using this command: sudo apt-get purge codeblocks-contrib-dbg codeblocks-libwxcontrib0 codeblocks-dbg \ codeblocks-dev ...

If you are not sure the upgrade will go to plan with the upgrade, you can uninstall the PPA's packages: Using ppa-purge, selecting it in Synaptic etc) and then upgrade - it should be fine then.) Using Synaptic may work on difficult PPAs, as I found out here: ppa-purge is ineffectual with that ppa, (elementary-os/daily) & probably the same with ...
