comment usb to serial problem
I assume you mean lsusb? Don't want to edit that if the problem is a typo. Also: please provide a link to the package you installed, or at least the name of the package.

comment How to run applications as root?
@АртёмЦарионов For one thing, as root you can edit files your computer uses to start up the operating system or load your graphical environment, effectively breaking your computer.

@gertvdijk Thanks. It is a little exasperating that the answer to a missing video codec problem seems to be ubuntu-restricted-extras and it was lazy of me to settle for that instead of figuring out which package in the meta package actually contained what I needed.

Before you run an arbitrary command, especially w/sudo make sure you know what it does. So try man rfkill first!

You realize how cryptic this line is, yes? "the preinstall script prevents the installation if you don't install it"

Ahh. "you cannot install this software" is confusing. Since what I did was install a package, I think of ttf-mscorefonts-installer as "this software". The font installer doesn't install "software" it installs fonts. A more clear error would read "you cannot install these fonts."
