Package 'libreoffice5.2-stdlibs:i386' is not installed, so not removed
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 libobasis5.2-core:i386 : Depends: libreoffice5.2-ure:i386 (>= 5.2.2.2) but it is not going to be installed
                          Depends: libreoffice5.2-ure:i386 (<= 5.2.2.2-2) but it is not going to be installed
 master-pdf-editor3:i386 : Depends: libqt4-svg:i386 (>= 4.6.4) but it is not going to be installed
                           Depends: libqt4-network:i386 (>= 4.6.4) but it is not going to be installed
                           Depends: libqtcore4:i386 (>= 4.6.4) but it is not going to be installed
                           Depends: libqtgui4:i386 (>= 4.8.4) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

I accidentally installed 32bit instead. Now it's refusing to remove. I would prefer not to run sudo apt-get -f install as it touches other stuff.

  • Try with sudo dpkg --purge libreoffice5.2*, I am not sure if it helps but to try it costs only 30 seconds of your time... – mook765 Oct 10 '16 at 15:28
