The following packages have unmet dependencies:
firefox : Depends: libasound2 (> 1.0.24.1)
E: Broken packages


How do I fix:confused: I already tried in the package manager and it said no unbroken packages. I rebooted into repair mode and it couldn't fix it. I also used the terminal to fix broken packages, it said it couldn't resolve. I tried to install libasound2 (> 1.0.24.1) and couldn't.

In a terminal do


sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-cache policy libasound2

What does the message say?
