    You didn't say what version you are running. The package is available if using the correct version (packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=libpolkit-gobject-1-0); if using an unsupported or development version of Ubuntu your question is off-topic on this site (is that why you didn't mention release of Ubuntu? if using Ubuntu at all. It's a package used by Mint a lot more than Ubuntu!)

    Please add output of apt-cache policy libpolkit-gobject-1-0 to the question and specify your Ubuntu version.

1 Answer 1


sudo dpkg –-remove –-force-remove-reinstreq <package_name>

<package_name> should be replaced with the name of the package you want to remove.
