    Update Manager Error

    Greetings to you all,

    I have a persistent error in my update manager that I can't resolve on my own. I'm hoping someone can assist me.

    Here is the error message:

    "An error ocurred, please run Package Manager from the right-click menu or apt-get in a terminal to see what went wrong. The error message was 'Error: BrokenCount > 0' This usually means that your installed packages have unmet dependencies."

    Can anyone lend a hand, please?

    Try to go into a terminal and do sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade.

    After that you should open the software center and check what it says and get back to us here.

    See this. Most probably you'll find a solution there.

    I did what you suggested and once I opened the Software Center, here are the messages I received:

    If it is about unmet dependencies try this command on the terminal
    Code:
    apt-get install -f
    You might also have encountered this error because the Inodes on your storage might be used up i.e. in other words the disk might be full.Try with this command
    Code:
    df -i
    This will tell you the Inodes used/free.

    Also, please post the results of suggested terminal commands back here. E.g. one of your screenshots shows that in order to repair the package catalog, Ubuntu Software Center tried to remove aptdaemon, but couldn't because USC itself depends on it. It would be helpful to see what actual apt-get actions were executed and what error messages you were getting for each of them.
