When I try and install Google Chrome using the terminal I get the following

dpkg: error processing package google-chrome-stable (--install): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for gnome-menus (3.13.3-6ubuntu3.1) ... Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils (0.22-1ubuntu5.1) ... Processing triggers for bamfdaemon (0.5.3~bzr0+16.04.20160824-0ubuntu1) ... Rebuilding /usr/share/applications/bamf-2.index... Processing triggers for mime-support (3.59ubuntu1) ... Processing triggers for man-db (2.7.5-1) ... Errors were encountered while processing: google-chrome-stable How can I overcome this problem. My machine is 64 bit

with this output i would try

sudo dpkg --no-act --configure  -a 

To see if the system want to do something and if I like what it outputs

sudo dpkg --configure  -a

  • I then tried to install and got roger@roger-MS-7994:~$ sudo apt-get install libappindicator1 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package libappindicator1 is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'libappindicator1' has no installation candidate roger@roger-MS-7994:~$ What do I do to sort this out? – Roger Carver Nov 1 '17 at 11:35
  • did you update the apt before running the install? sudo apt-get update && sudo dpkg --no-act --configure -a' – Drymartini Nov 1 '17 at 21:14
