Problem re automatic updating
I just had some updating problem. Here's what I was told:
leslie@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get check
[sudo] password for leslie:
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.
perl : Depends: perl-modules (>= 5.14.2-6ubuntu2.3) but 5.14.2-6ubuntu2.2 is installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
I'm simply afraid to run apt-get -f install, because I might stop my system from running.
I Googled for "perl-modules" "5.14.2-6ubuntu2.3", but didn't get any hits that seemed to me to be helpful.
Can I just find and install the newer perl-modules? If so, how?
Edit: How I show my ignorance!
I found I could do sudo apt-get install perl-modules=5.14.2-6ubuntu2.3, which seems to have solved my problem, so I came back here to delete my post, but can't figure out how to do that!
Apologies for troubling people.
