I tried to install Ubuntu Restricted Extras in the Terminal. Now when ever I try to install an app or something I get this File"/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/aptdaemon/worker.py" line 968, in simulate trans. unauthenticated = self._simulate_help(trans) What do I do?????
Have you tried this?
Essentially in that thread and the one it links to:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
From the man page this:
Configure a package which has been unpacked but not yet config‐ ured. If -a or --pending is given instead of package, all unpacked but unconfigured packages are configured.
So, you're just trying to get your packages in a consistent state. Then a
sudo apt-get update and
sudo apt-get upgrade to get to latest...from the terminal. If it fails, note what packages it complains about.
Then you can force remove/purge/reinstall them.
"How do I purge and re-install"
sudo apt-get remove --purge ubuntu-restricted-*
You may need a -f in there if something is in an inconsistent state.
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
