    Ubuntu Software Centre

    When I go onto the Ubuntu Software Centre, I get this message,

    "Items cannot be installed or removed until the package catalogue is repaired. do you want to repair it now?".

    I click on repair, enter my password, and then after a few minutes this message comes up,

    "Package operation failed.

    The installation or removal of a software package failed".

    When I click on "details", it brings up this,

    installArchives() failed: dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of fgfs-base:
    fgfs-models-base (2.6.0-1~getdeb1) breaks fgfs-base (<< 2.6.0) and is installed.

    Re: Ubuntu Software Centre

    Try the following commands:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    The first one will update package information, the second will try to update the system while smartly resolving dependency problems.
    Do you have any third-party repositories enabled?

    Re: Ubuntu Software Centre

    If anything just running "sudo apt-get update" should fix these errors, if it doesn't then check your source.list file to make sure that nothing is wrong with it since that could also be the issue as well.

    An update will not fix dependency issues, but it should give you a list of errors to help trouble shoot this.

    A dist-upgrade will try to resolve conflicts.

    Please post the errors from apt-get update.

    Re: Ubuntu Software Centre

    Thanks,

    There is no problem with sudo apt-get update,

    However, when I go on to
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade, I get this message.

    hinchliffe@hinchliffe-OEM:~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    You might want to run ‘apt-get -f install’ to correct these.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies.
    fgfs-models-base : Breaks: fgfs-base (< 2.6.0) but 2.4.0-1 is installed
    flightgear : Depends: fgfs-base (>= 2.6.0) but 2.4.0-1 is installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
    hinchliffe@hinchliffe-OEM:~$


    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    apt-get -f install
    Try running that command with sudo in front of it.

    Try it again but with sudo in front of it:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get -f install
    You always need sudo for any commands to install, remove or update packages. This is what stops dodgy things from the internet sneaking malware onto your machine.
