    ubuntu tweak error

    So I'm trying to run the update manager through Ubuntu Tweak, and every time I try to install updates, I get the error: "Could not apply changes! Fix broken packages first."

    I've gone into my terminal and run sudo apt-get update with no problems, so I'm not exactly sure what packages are causing the issue, can someone help me out?

    Did you install it from the PPA like this:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

    I just ran that (I had originally installed Ubuntu tweak through a script file) but I have Ubuntu Tweak at the latest version apparently, so it did me no good.

    Uninstall the script. Back trace your steps. And then use the PPA above to install it.

    If you can't fix it yourself, then here is a walk-through to get things working again on your system.

    Run Synaptic Package Manager, Edit menu and select "Fix Broken Packages". That should clear it up.
