Sorry if this is a repetitive or stupid question, but I couldn't seem to find anything on the internet that worked with this exact situation.
I'm currently running Ubuntu 18.04, and it recently opened up Software Updater with an update for Ubuntu, as usual. But when I try to actually update, it always closes with:
The package system is broken
Check if you are using third party repositories. If so disable them, since they are a common source of problems. Furthermore run the following command in a Terminal: apt-get install -f Transaction failed: The package system is broken The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libgl1-mesa-dev: Depends: mesa-common-dev (= 19.1.2-0~b~padoka0) but 19.0.1-3~b~padoka0 is installed
This same sort of message about unmet dependencies, libgl1-mesa-dev, and the too far updated version of mesa-common-dev happens whenever I try to install or update any packages. I have tried using the command prompted in the error message, but it doesn't work. I couldn't find anything else on the internet that worked either, and I'm really stuck right now.
If anyone has any information on how to fix this, or any useful information that I could still give, I am completely open to pretty much any suggestion. Thanks!
EDIT #1 - Here's the output of
dpkg -l | grep padoka
apt-cache policy mesa-common-dev libgl1-mesa-dev
