My first post and question to the Forum. I am a relatively new user in Ubuntu and have upgraded from 16.04 to 17.10 While trying to install a scanner (HP Deskjet All-in-one 2135),The driver installation failed (update using HPLIP Application and SimpleScan in Ubuntu) Currently am unable to run the command "sudo apt-get upgrade" due to the following errors.

pvrao@pvrao-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get update

You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these. 
The following packages have unmet dependencies:  libsnmp30:i386 : Depends: libperl5.26:i386 (>= 5.26.0~rc1) but it is not installed 
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

I have tried running sudo apt --fix-broken install as indicated and the message is as follows:

Please help me resolve this issue. Thanks a lot in advance.

  • You are going to need to file a bug report, this is not something you can easily fix. File against libperl5.26:i386 with "trying to overwrite shared '/usr/share/doc/libperl5.26/changelog.Debian.gz', which is different from other instances of package libperl5.26:i386" – Panther Nov 19 '17 at 6:06
  • Did you install anything outside the repositories with dpkg ? – Panther Nov 19 '17 at 6:10

    You can get info on what happened to your packaging system from /var/log/apt/*. – waltinator Nov 19 '17 at 6:28
