I accidentally removed Python from Ubuntu 18.04, graphical interface gone, and now I can't even reinstall it.

I tried to re-install the graphical interface with sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop, but I've obtained a list of dependencies which were not satisfied (the ones depending on Python I suppose). Using àpt --fix-broken install doesn't work as well, as I obtain errors concerning dpkg: E: sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code(1).

Is there a way to fix this without reinstalling Ubuntu? Many thanks

EDIT: output of sudo apt-get install python3-all and the output of sudo apt-get --fix-broken install IMG-3402.jpg


I reinstalled Ubuntu. It is a faster option

    He's right. OP did a very wrong, It's probably a better option to reinstall it.
