Ubuntu 17.10 I tried upgrading my graphics drivers using the oibaf PPA, but it flubbed on the libdrm requirements, saying it needed 2.85, but only had 2.83. tried a --fix-broken and got this:

You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:

E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

Yikes! It wants to uninstall my entire DE! Now I do have ubuntu-desktop removed (to remove the dock). I can't install anything right now without it wanting to remove EVERYTHING. I though ppa-purge was supposed to prevent this kind of thing. Any advice?

edit: I should also state I am running this on a Dell xps 13, so full Intel CPU and GPU. I also went through and did an apy install ubuntu-desktop^ to try and make surer all the packages for the DE were marked for install, but it hasn't made any visible difference.

Final Edit: I finally managed to fix it. I used sudo dpkg --purge libdrm-common, re-enabled the PPA, updated, then ran sudo apt upgrade and it upgraded fine. It now no longer tries to uninstall my DE, and the packages no longer throw errors.

  • Did you try sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers then sudo apt update Commented Oct 30, 2017 at 14:41
  • Thanks for the suggestion. Tried that, no change on the fix-broken. I think I am going to try focusing on fixing these errors, because they are what is hanging up the oibaf PPA: libgl1-mesa-dri : Depends: libdrm-amdgpu1 (>= 2.4.85+git1710271830.33dcc2~gd~a) but 2.4.83-1 is installed libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 : Depends: libdrm-amdgpu1:i386 (>= 2.4.85+git1710271830.33dcc2~gd~a) but 2.4.83-1 is installed Commented Oct 30, 2017 at 14:51

    It looks like the maintainer has been made aware via his forum on phoronix. No resolution yet though. Commented Oct 30, 2017 at 15:44
