I am sure, this is going to be a duplicate thread, but believe me, I tried out all the original ones In fact. Whenever my system starts up, I am welcomed with this message below:

I searched all the forums, reinstalled, restarted, uninstalled an installed again, rebooted, completely removed including folder and cache. Tried everything that' literally found in the forms, I tried rebooting after I done all these works arounds. Yet no hope, this annoying thing pops up and makes my day worse. Any help largely appreciated. Almost 20+ solutions I tried one after another btw.


This issue was solved here: https://askubuntu.com/a/667542/530893

To quote the actual solution:

sudo rm -rf /var/lib/update-notifier/package-data-downloads/partial/*
sudo apt-get --purge --reinstall install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
