I switched from Windows 10 to Ubuntu Unity 16.04 LTS on January 1st 2018 (I had to completely erase my Windows OS in order to get Linux on, there wasn't a dual-boot option)

Whenever I log in it shows me 5 pop-ups saying "Error" on them and whenever I try doing a new update it says "Package operation failed - The installation or removal of a software package failed." or "The application Software Updater has closed unexpectedly."

I also need to mention that my network is currently hacked by an IT member (which is why I'm using Linux) and it's not something I can fix at this moment (if this information helps diagnose the problems with my PC)

Here are screenshots of the variety of error messages I'm now getting these days:

The Updated Part It gave me this error: Quote on quote: "apt-get -f install" I tried doing that "apt-get -f install" thing the terminal recommended but it gave me another error.

Here's what happens when I try doing the "apt-get -f install" thing it's telling me to do: "Unmet dependencies" and "Permission denied" from removing old kernels.

I tried following the other guides but I was the only one to have this particular issue so my issue is different from the others.

  • You need to preface the apt-get -f install with sudo and enter your password when prompted. – Organic Marble Jun 4 '18 at 11:27
  • You can use sudo apt clean or sudo apt autoclean to clear all package archives to free up some space for downloading the packages. – GBolt Jun 19 '18 at 6:35
