    Red face Could not apply changes! Fix broken packages first

    By using Ubuntu Tweak - Update Manager I got only one package that needs to be update (upstart, event-based init daemon). However when I click on the Install Update I'm getting this message in a window:

    Could not apply changes! Fix broken packages first.

    So now my question is... how do I fix the broken packages?

    open a terminal

    type

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get upgrade

    any errors?

    if it says something like "run sudo dpkg --configure" etc - then run the command as suggested

    There was a problem with this ubuntu update coming out before another required update was available along with it.

    All should be resolved now,
