I downloaded google chrome that was made for my computer from https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb. For some reason after I installed I can't open. Also in the corner where the time and other things are there's this red circle with a white dash in the middle of it. It says "An error occured, please run package manager from the right click menu or apt-get in a terminal to see what is wrong. The error message was: 'Unknown Error:''(E:The package google-chrome-stable needs to be reinstalled,but I can't find an archive for it.)' This usually means that your installed packages have unmet dependencies.
Use the following commands in a terminal:
sudo dpkg --configure -a sudo apt-get install -f sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo dpkg --configure -a
You will want to reboot after using these commands. This can be done from the reboot menu, or by using this command in the terminal:
You can open up a terminal by using CTRL+ALT+T or by using ALT+F2 and typing
That should fix the 'An error occurred, please run package manage' part.
Try using these commands to install chrome. This assumes that the google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb file is in your downloads folder:
cd Downloads sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb sudo apt-get install -f
Please paste the output of those last commands.
