-------@------:~$ so the question is what did I destroy inadvertently I ran

sudo apt-get -f install and get similar errors


Dependency errors created by apt-get can usually be solved by running sudo apt-get -f install. If that doesn't solve the issue, edit your question.

  • I tryed that before posting the question and I got the same error message – Riemann-bitcoin. Sep 1 '17 at 12:15
