It's a problem with apparmor - you can follow the below procedure to fix it: copy the status file for future sudo cp /var/lib/dpkg/status /var/lib/dpkg/status-old empty the status file sudo echo "" >/var/lib/dpkg/status populate the status file sudo apt-get update

Try sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386. If that fails, or it doesn't fix the problem, do sudo apt-get install -f.

One way to get most of the build dependencies would be to run sudo apt-get build-dep gitg. This would install all of the build dependencies needed to compile gitg. However, note that because of the old version (0.2.7), there might be some dependencies installed that aren't needed, and some dependencies that are needed but not installed.

Usually I solve this with aptitude program. After install with sudo apt-get install aptitude, use it to solve the dependencies problem. Run the same install command for opencv, but now using aptitude. By example: sudo aptitude install opencv Then aptitude will display to you some suggestions to solve the dependencies problem. If you don't agree with ...

Do a: sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/* sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/partial/* then a: sudo apt-get download linux-server linux-image-server linux-headers-server As there seems to be a discrepency between the versions of linux-server (= 3.2.0.69.82) and linux-image-server (= 3.2.0.76.90) install the packages using: cd /var/cache/apt/archives sudo ...

Yes. I tried it: sudo apt-get install munin-node As it turns out, Apache is not a requirement (nor any other web server).

This is actually a bug. I have already reported this issue on Bugs Launchpad and you can follow it using these two bug-tracker links. bug 1424263 bug 1424265 You can fix it manually but it is to complicated. Ubuntu devs will fix it soon so I advise you just wait for updates.

In the case libtool/libtool-bin, I think an OR relation might work: Build-Depends: libtool-bin (>= 2.4.2-1.10) | libtool (<< 2.4.2-1.10) The version numbers are that of utopic, when the split was imported from Debian. Note that in 2.4.2-1.10, libtool still depends on libtool-bin. The dependency was reversed in 2.4.2-1.11, which is why this change ...

This is a permission problem. Let's illustrate this by checking the permissions on /usr/local/lib/python2.7: ls -ld /usr/local/lib/python2.7 >> drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Aug 1 2014 /usr/local/lib/python2.7 We can see here that this directory belongs to the user root. In order to install ipython into this directory, you're either going to have to ...

Try to force remove packages installed with unmet dependencies before running apt-get -f install. In your specific case, you may try: sudo apt-get -f remove libreoffice-core libreoffice-help-en-us libreoffice-java-common libreoffice-l10n-en-gb libreoffice-l10n-en-za libreoffice-l10n-it Be sure to look at installed packages and add to command above any ...

Looks like I need to improve my selection of Google search words. I think this will do the trick: http://serverfault.com/questions/250224/how-do-i-get-apt-get-to-ignore-some-dependencies

The observed behavior seems to result from a legitimate bug that is described at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/eglibc/+bug/1365375 The above-cited report contains my short-term workaround that will render apt-get usable again. I believe that, in essence, sudo apt-get -f install fails is a duplicate of this question.

Circular dependencies happen in the repositories, but the ones left standing obey some specific rules. Usually these are tightly bound packages (such as between g++-4.6 and libstdc++6-4.6-dev, or perl and perl-modules), so the Depends relationship between them specify the exact version number. For example, g++-4.6 4.6.3-1ubuntu5 depends on libstdc++6-4.6-dev ...

You asked, Now my question is if vlc depended on some packages that were uninstalled due to uninstallation of some other stuff, then why would those packages be removed even when vlc had dependency on them? Answer: No, apt package management system, which Ubuntu uses, doesn't remove a package upon which other packages depend, even if you want to ...

This could be because of some conflicts with some PPA. You could try what is suggested here. or, alternatively, use sudo aptitude install haskell-platform aptitude can offer some more suggestions to resolve dependencies.

You didn't say how you install the packages you downloaded. If you simply get the .deb files from the other system, then I bet you're using dpkg --install to install the .deb directly. As you have found out by now, dpkg can't resolve and handle dependency issues like apt can. One way to "roll back" the changes is to use apt-get to remove the packages you ...

Firstly, you mention this is not the case in Windows. You're actually wrong - in Windows the dependencies for software need to be downloaded too. Now to your issue. The problem with trying to install all the packages you need from an offline state is that you have no way to fix dependency problems. What apt and such do is they pull a list of all the ...

I am a little new to linux. I had the same problem, and this resolved it for me : 1- I did like previous post, except I replaced libwxbase3.0-0-unofficial with libwxgtk3.0-0-unofficial (since this was the error I had) sudo apt-add-repository 'deb http://repos.codelite.org/wx3.0.1/ubuntu/ trusty universe' sudo apt-get install curl curl ...

Try using sudo apt-get upgrade. Also, make sure you have a strong Internet connection.

apt-get autoremove removes orphan packages i.e. those packages that were automatically installed to satisfy dependencies for other packages and are now no longer needed. So running apt-get remove should not create any harm in your case. You are getting this because you might have missed some packages to reinstall. Now if you don't want to see these long ...
