I have searched the whole internet including reading everything on google/askubuntu/all ubuntu communities), tried all the possible solution and still didn't figure it out (but I am not google so my indexing and searching algorithm skills might not be that good)
anyways to the point. I am trying to run
apt-get update and then
I get the following error:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: libnvidia-ifr1-390 : Depends: libnvidia-gl-390 but it is not installed libnvidia-ifr1-390:i386 : Depends: libnvidia-gl-390:i386 but it is not installed nvidia-driver-390 : Depends: libnvidia-gl-390 (= 390.87-0ubuntu0~gpu18.04.1) but it is not installed Recommends: libnvidia-gl-390:i386 (= 390.87-0ubuntu0~gpu18.04.1) E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
then i ran
apt --fix-broken install .. and got these results
