So, mate-core depends on mate-desktop-environment-core which in turn depends on mate-terminal. A depend cannot be broken easily. Nor apt-get nor aptitude supports a --without or --exclude option and "holding" the packages won't help: $ echo "mate-terminal hold" | sudo dpkg --set-selections $ sudo apt-get install mate-core [...] Some packages could not be ...

Try installing synaptic from the command line, and see if you can't reinstall apt that way. From a terminal window, type in the following: wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/universe/s/synaptic/synaptic_0.81.1_amd64.deb then install the downloaded package: sudo dpkg -i synaptic_0.81.1_amd64.deb then run the installed app: sudo synaptic In the ...

If you want to remove the ATLAS development packages, they are actually called libatlas-dev and libatlas-base-dev. However, there should be no need to uninstall these packages in order to use OpenBLAS: the update-alternatives mechanism will take care of things for you, automatically assigning higher priority to the OpenBLAS version of libblas when you ...

I'm not sure what happened with your apt-get, but if you're unable to use it, you might want to use apt from Ubuntu repositories (simply downloading and installing via sudo dpkg -i package_name) the functionality of apt is pretty much similar to what you get with apt-get.

Assuming that your apt-get seriously needs a reinstall, you can try following: Check your current apt-get version by apt-get --version. Search for the same version's .deb file on launchpad.net install it by dpkg -i filename.deb Of course, this unfortunately cannot work if you also removed the packeges on which apt depends, like libgcc1

Apt manual claims that you can specify "exact dependency" with (=xx.yy) as well as <=, >=, but it does not work as documented. The way things seem to actually work is that Depends: version info has no functional value and is completely ignored. Without the version dependency, you cannot have a repo with multiple supported versions of the same package - ...

For what it's worth, I fought this issue for a while before I landed on this as a solution: sudo apt-get install steam -y This took care of all of the nasty package issues. Steam started right up.

First you should know as the others are sudoers then you can't restrict their access, but there is a tricky simple way to do what you want.

There is no such thing as tor 0.2.7.5. What you read about is Tor Launcher 0.2.7.5 which I suspect is a different thing that tor itself. You can have (in decreasing order of stability) the following build: the latest stable which 0.2.5.12.1 the latest experimental build which is 0.2.6.7.1 the latest dev build 0.2.7.1-alpha-dev-20150518T200057Z-1 none of ...

i'd try cleaning the status of my installation before resorting to uninstalling whatever created the problem: apt-get autoclean apt-get update apt-get upgrade apt-get install -f much better way to solve this in most cases and in at least one instance had helped me when the other way wouldn't work (because huge dependencies on the package to be removed)

Can't comment on the previous answer (lack of rep), but to add on to Kam's answer above, you can download the notify-osd .deb file from here, for me I just installed the daily one. Run sudo dpkg -i filename.deb and you'll find that it'll immediately work with your existing NotifyOSDConfig installed. This will "downgrade" notify-osd (as shown in output), and ...

Look at this line: Depends: libdrm2 (= 2.4.52-1) but 2.4.56-1~ubuntu1 will be installed. It says the libdrm-dev to be installed is 2.4.52-1 and requires its dependencies all versioned in 2.4.52-1. But your apt-get only has 2.4.56-1~ubuntu1 available. Thus, you may try to 'upgrade' the version of libdrm-dev, that is version 2.4.56-1~ubuntu1, as same as ...

I'm using the 14.10 package, and it works out of the box, however, you have to use use the --force option to install it, and you must bloacklist notify-osd in synaptic (prevent future updates) or it's gonna reinstall the official package - untill the ppa is updated for vivid that is.

Your Ubuntu is too old. Upgrade your system and the PPA (ppa:claydoh/kmymoney2-kde4, described here) will work. Try the following, but I can not promise that it works with your Ubuntu version. I quote @terdon: If it fails, it will fail before the make install step and so will not attempt to install anything. It is perfectly safe to try. cd wget ...

Here is some sloppy, and probably not very encompassing post-processing you can do to dpkg -I output to get dependency items as a list: Condensed for computers # dpkg -I package.deb | python -c "import sys, re; t=re.split(r'\n(?= ?[\w]+:)|:', sys.stdin.read()); print '\n'.join([i.strip() for i in {key.strip(): value.strip() for key, value in zip(t[::2], ...

It is quite safe most of the times, but when you use it you must check your terminal for the names of the packages that are about to be removed because sometimes errors happen. Do not agree to the removal of dependencies without having double checked the names of the packages that are about to be removed and see if there is any that shouldn't normally be ...

Autoremove only removes orphaned packages. Meaning that it is completely safe to use without disrupting any functional or currently installed programs.


4

It should be quite safe. Autoremove removes only packages, which were installed by dependency of a removed package. They should not be needed. You are correct. Your system should be as before you installed 'packagename'.

If you have no connection to internet whatsoever and have not got anyone near where you can connect to the internet there is an option not mentioned yet: have someone send the source files via the regular post.

By default, the package manager refuses to overwrite files that also appear in other installed packages (whether the file is actually there or not), which is a sane decision to not inadvertently corrupt packages. In your case, this means, that the packages are incompatible. I can see that one seems to come from a PPA, so you should write to the maintainer of ...

A /home/ is intended for personal documents; not for software installation. Besides that not all computers are just by just 1 user and this saves a lot of space for all of us.

For a system that will always be kept offline, it is usually best to use one of the robust offline package management methods presented in some of the other answers, since they facilitate keeping already-installed packages up to date rather than merely installing a handful of packages, one time.
