running a brand new install, just upgraded, and I hit these errors.
Running apt-get upgrade says kernel has unmet dependencies, suggests apt-get -f install, running that returns dpkg error 1. Tried searching everything, can't find solution.
Running dpkg --configure -a returns same kernel dependency errors.
Using Ubuntu Gnome 16.04.03 LTS.
