It looks like Google chrome has updated the google-chrome-stable to Version 111.0.5563.64 which depends on libu2f-udev. However, I got the following results during installation:

Preparing to unpack google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb ... Unpacking google-chrome-stable (111.0.5563.64-1) over (108.0.5359.124-1) ... dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of google-chrome-stable: google-chrome-stable depends on libu2f-udev; however: Package libu2f-udev is not installed.

dpkg: error processing package google-chrome-stable (--install): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

After installation it seems there's no issue running Chrome. Is there really a need for that dependency? I've found that it's related to 2FA. What was left "unconfigured?"

Seeing as my installation of Ubuntu is running as a server I wonder if leaving it unconfigured is wise.

    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS has reached the end of it's standard support life thus is now off-topic here unless your question is specific to helping you move to a supported release of Ubuntu. Ubuntu 16.04 ESM support is available, but not on-topic here, see askubuntu.com/help/on-topic See also ubuntu.com/blog/…

  • Where can this question be asked for ESM version?

    The only SE site that allows it is SE Unix & Linux, ESM does have some paid support options which include email, phone & more so refer to Ubuntu sites like my prior links. @SeekTruth but also don't forget some ESM support for Desktop installs was only provided when deb packages were replaced with snap options as was documented when 16.04 started ESM in the security & other notices.

  • excellent question, too bad it is not even allowed to post such a question here. Mar 1, 2023 at 21:50
  • As there are still 16.04 LTS running: try this: <br/> wget archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/libu/libu2f-host/… dpkg <br/> -i libu2f-udev_1.1.4-1_all.deb <br/>After that, you can install the deb and then retry update Chrome or Vivaldi Browser.
