    Run Package Manager, Ubuntu 13.04, 64-bit

    I have a problem icon (red circle with horizontal bar, near upper right).
    A click on the icon, produces the following message:

    Code:
    "An error occured, please run Package Manager from the right-click menu or apt-
    get in a terminal to see what is wrong.
    The error message was: 'Error Broken Count > 0'
    This usually means that your installed packages have unmet dependencies."
    I can't find Package Manager or the "right-click menu or apt-".
    Can someone translate to English, and provide more guidance?

    Thanks,
    Jack

    Open the terminal and type:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -f
    This should correct the dependencies.

    yeah it will be it can also un-correct other packages that maybe install like forcing downgrades that can cause more headaches then it is worth. This is why I asked to see what was causeing this maybe it is 3rd party maybe it is ..... Hope that this helps.

    Ah, I see......

    Apt does have super cow powers, but not all of them have good outputs on the system packages.

    Thanks, I will keep that in mind when using that command.

    You got me wondering about this.

    -q, --quiet
    Quiet; produces output suitable for logging, omitting progress
    indicators. More q's will produce more quiet up to a maximum of 2.
    You can also use -q=# to set the quiet level, overriding the
    configuration file. Note that quiet level 2 implies -y, you should
    never use -qq without a no-action modifier such as -d, --print-uris
    or -s as APT may decided to do something you did not expect.

    Configuration Item: quiet.
    Taken from man apt-get

    Code:
    apt-get upgrade --help | grep qq
      -qq No output except for errors
    but yeah -d should be used

    it can also un-correct other packages that maybe install like forcing downgrades
    And just to be sure everyone is on the same page, "-f install" does not stand for force install. This is the command for "fix broken packages" and is recommended to fix unmet dependences.

    Code:
    bluebeard@bluebeard-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get -qq upgrade
    [sudo] password for bluebeard: 
    E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
