Questions tagged [dependencies]

In Ubuntu most applications have dependencies, programs that they depend on to run correctly. This means that installing a package sometimes requires other packages to be installed, and removing packages will cause others to be removed by APT to prevent them from breaking. Use this tag when asking about managing and resolving dependencies
