    The following packages have unmet dependencies

    Been having a problem with my Server 12.04 with the following after attempting apt-get upgrade. Tried the suggested "-f", and a few other items found in the forum. So far, no joy. I have been unsuccessful what the last installation was before the issue started. The only thing on the server is SSH, Samba, and the TMux (terminal) utility.

    trs@usv1:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    initramfs-tools : Depends: initramfs-tools-bin (< 0.99ubuntu13.1~) but 0.99ubuntu13.1 is installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

    Any extra ideas would be extremely appreciated.

    Re: The following packages have unmet dependencies

    As an FYI, this issue did begin some time around a backup issue when I had an external hard drive connected to the server. The hard drive crashed and instead of the backup routine backing files up to the external hard drive, it backed files up to the mount point folder (/mnt/exthdd) and filled up the hard drive. Not if the full drive was the cause of the issue or just a coincident.

    Could you ck. your sources & make sure that both precise-security & precise-updates are enabled. Then, either way, update your sources (sudo apt-get update) & try again.

    If still no go ck. this - both packages must be available (candidate) & or installed at same version, the .1 is from precise-updates
    Code:
    apt-cache policy initramfs-tools initramfs-tools-bin

    You need at least 10% of the file system free, or bad things happern. Try freeing up some space and run:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get check
    sudo apt-get clean

    No joy with provided suggestions.

    Even tried replacing sources.list with file from working server.

    Here is what the sources list looks like.
