I want to install texlive-full using Ubuntu 18.04 on top of Windows 10 RS3 using the WSL. This is a clean system without any additional repository. The installation failed as follows:
$ sudo apt install texlive .... Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/texlive-fonts-extra_2015.20160320-1_all.deb /var/cache/apt/archives/texlive-fonts-extra-doc_2015.20160320-1_all.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
So then, I retried to double-check the error messaging
$ sudo apt install texlive-full Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done texlive-full is already the newest version (2015.20160320-1ubuntu0.1). You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: texlive-full : Depends: texlive-fonts-extra-doc (>= 2015) but it is not going to be installed Depends: texlive-fonts-extra (>= 2015) but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
And then followed the suggestion from the tool to use
apt-get -f install to fix it. However, the command does not fix the problem

There seems to be some problems with permissions according to the errors (unable to create file messages among all this output) but I can't see how to fix this. Any idea?
Now, whenever I try to install anything through apt it complains that I have to fix this dependency, but I cannot.
