Re: Following recommendation from 'sudo apt-get install apt-show-versions' breaks sky
I don't seem to be able to install synaptic either:

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies.
synaptic : Depends: libept1.4.12 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libvte9 (>= 1:0.24.0) but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: rarian-compat but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
