My WiFi went down as I was upgrading. Now, when I try to update software, I get an error message stating that I am not authorized to install or uninstall software. I cannot access synaptic. I searched through other partial upgrade threads and eventually removed a package called brllty. This, however did nothing. I tried purging, dpkg does not work, autoremove, clean and a number of other things. I simply cannot get the 344 held packages either off my system or to upgrade. The last thing I tried is apt-get dist-upgrade and this is the error message I got.
alexander@alexander-HP-14-Notebook-PC:~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: libcogl15 : Depends: libegl1-mesa-drivers xul-ext-webaccounts : Depends: webaccounts-extension-common (= 0.5-0ubuntu2) but it is not going to be installed E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as I have no idea what to do. Thanks.
