I have a Dell Inspiron R17 N7110 (Laptop) running a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04.2.
At startup, I get this message telling me some packages might have missing dependencies.
So I ran
sudo apt --fix-broken install and this is the output:

It left the .deb files in
/var/cache/apt/archives/, so I tried installing them manually from there. That did nothing.
Thanks in advance.
