This question already has an answer here:
I have Ubuntu 13.10 on my desktop.I wanted to install the "D-Link DWR-730" 3G modem drivers, but the default autoplay software for Ubuntu says "kernel not supported" for this.
I ran the
dpkg -i command to install the .dep files manually, but after this every
apt-get command returns an error and tells me to run
apt-get -f install to correct this.
apt-get -f install, but it still returns an error, and I can't install anything from
apt-get. The apt-get error is as follows:
Errors were encountered while processing: flashplugin-installer E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
apt-get remove flashplugin-installer, but that also returns an error.
sudo apt-get -f install gives the following output:
