    Angry [SOLVED] How to fix broken packages?

    Hello, thank you very much for looking at my topic!

    whenever I try to add new programs I get this error:

    "Could not apply changes! Fix broken packages first."

    So I went to Package Manager>Edit>Fix broken packages but it seems to think none of em are broke. I also tried:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get -f install
    And that didn't work either.

    ;_;

    Is your internet connection working? And if so, please list your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

    Try
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    to update your package list.
    Then
    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    to clean up any partial packages.
    Then
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    to clean up the apt cache.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    will clean up any unneeded dependencies.
    If while doing this you can identify the broken package this code will very forcefully remove it.
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --remove -force --force-remove-reinstreq package name
    Change package name to the real name of course.
