I tried to install gparted and many other applications. Using terminal, I get errors as shown below. Even when I install it from Software Center, installing... displays for 5 seconds and then it goes back to install. I have 7 GB free space.

I recently uninstalled LibreOffice using Ubuntu Software Center and installed OpenOffice 4.1.5 following this YouTube tutorial. I guess this caused a problem.


$ sudo apt-get install gparted

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 gparted : Depends: libgtkmm-2.4-1v5 (>= 1:2.24.0) but it is not going to be installed
           Depends: libparted-fs-resize0 (>= 3.1) but it is not going to be installed
 libreoffice-core : Depends: libreoffice-common (> 1:5.1.6~rc2) but it is not going to be installed
 libreoffice-help-en-us : Depends: libreoffice-l10n-en-us
 libreoffice-java-common : Depends: libreoffice-common (= 1:5.1.6~rc2-0ubuntu1~xenial3) but it is not going to be installed
 libreoffice-l10n-en-gb : Depends: libreoffice-common but it is not going to be installed
 libreoffice-l10n-en-za : Depends: libreoffice-common but it is not going to be installed
 libreoffice-style-elementary : Depends: libreoffice-common (= 1:5.1.6~rc2-0ubuntu1~xenial3) but it is not going to be installed
 libreoffice-style-galaxy : Depends: libreoffice-common (= 1:5.1.6~rc2-0ubuntu1~xenial3) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

    If you only have 2.3G of free disk space, your disk is full, and you won't be able to install much. Delete stuff you don't need to free up some more space. – heynnema Apr 5 '18 at 12:33

    Hmm I'd expect a relevant error message if that were the case. An APT download won't use that much space... – Zanna Apr 5 '18 at 19:18
