I have trouble install packages with apt-get. I get the following error:

For every package I'm trying to install.

I've tried following the discussions in: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1889732 error installing libreoffice 4-0

but had no success.

can anyone help?


ok thanks. I solved by running:

sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice-core libreoffice-common python3-uno libreoffice-*

for some reason removing each package separately has failed but in the same command - it worked
