Yesterday i tried to do a dist-upgrade to 15.10, and it got broken.
The fact is that the hard disk had no much free disk space (around 650mb), and the upgrades are over 1500mb.
Upgrade manager didn't work, so I entered,
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sed -i 's/vivid/wily/g' /etc/apt/sources.list sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
and seeing that it was accessing Wily, I upgraded packages by hand (first dependencies and libraries), and all remaining packages later.
The upgrade worked almost fine, except one thing: previously I had to uninstall some larger packages I had installed (like Gimp, Inkscape, Scribus, Blender, Krita, Openshot, etc.) and I can’t install them back:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done 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: libgtk-3-0 : Depends: libmirclient9 (>= 0.17.0+15.10.20151008.2) but it is not going to be installed E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
Is there any way to fix this? Or the only way is to do a fresh install over it?
