Just about anything I try to install via the package manager gets the following:

root@opsview-appliance:/etc/apt/sources.list.d# apt-get install make
  Reading package lists... Done 
  Building dependency tree 
  Reading state information... Done 
  make is already the newest version. 
  You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: 
  The following packages have unmet dependencies.  
    linux-image-virtual : Depends: linux-image-3.13.0-106-generic but it is not going to be installed 
  E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

Even when using -f its more of the same:

root@opsview-appliance:/etc/apt/sources.list.d# apt-get -f install make 
  Reading package lists... Done 
  Building dependency tree 
  Reading state information... Done 
  make is already the newest version. 
  You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: 
  The following packages have unmet dependencies.  
    linux-image-virtual : Depends: linux-image-3.13.0-106-generic but it is not going to be installed 
  E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

    Did you try the suggestion ? apt-get -f install What is the output of this ? Did you add any repositories?

  • This is a packaged VM for opsview so it came with their repos (I didnt touch it). It used to work flawlessly. apt-get -f gives me the exact same results with linux-image-3.13.0-106-generic dependency.

Believe it or not this is what solved the problem:

apt-get install linux-image-3.13.0-106-generic

I should mention that I also had to extend the /boot partition as it didnt allow me to install anything without it.

  • You've probably got old kernels installed that you no longer need and can be removed.
