    Broken Packages

    Hello.
    Can I skip the "apt-get install -f" and forget the broken packages?
    I have a lot of broken packages and I do NOT WANT to download thats.

    Re: Broken Packages

    IMHO, if I were you, I wouldn't skip it.

    The most basic fixes to resolve dependencies problems is to run:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get -f install
    The -f option stands for “fix broken”. apt will attempt to correct broken dependencies. If you manually installed a package that had unmet dependencies, apt-get will install those dependencies, if possible, otherwise it may simply remove the package that you installed in order to resolve the problem.

    Afterwards, run:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    Then, run this again:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get -f install
