    Re: 'Error: BrokenCount>0'

    That may be why you are having issues. Did you make a copy of the sources.list before adding new lines?

    In any event, let's take a look at the PPAs and sources.list:

    Code:
    grep -H -v ^# /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*
    Command is case-sensitive, capital H

    Thanks.

    I did not make a copy of the sources.list.
    Here's the output of the command:

    I would try this to figure out which repository might be causing problems:

    Go to Settings >> Software & Updates >> Other Software and uncheck third party repositories, either all of them or one at a time until you figure out which is causing the error.

    If you do each one separately then try
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update install -f
    each time.

    Hopefully you will at least know which one is causing the problem after this.

    I have no 3rd party repositories option in here...

    You have a ton of third parties activated. That's what PPAs and all of those other repos are.

    Uncheck everything on the page you've posted (but only what is on that page and no others), then run the basic:
    Code:
    sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade && sudo apt autoremove && sudo apt clean
    …and post output back to this thread.

    FWIW, new Linux users (and especially those coming from Windows) often make the error of adding tons of PPAs and third party repos to their install. This is required in the Windows world where every app is jealously guarded by their developers so must be downloaded from their site, but in the Linux-sphere, anything that a new user is likely to use can be found in the official repo. Therefore, it is unwise to attach any further PPAs or outside repos. Doing so is the primary cause of the sort of dependency hell that you are experiencing. Chasing down such problems is also a cold and clammy exercise.

    If the above doesn't work, you may have to try ppa-purge. This will remove not only the PPA, but also the app that was installed by the PPA. However,

    1. it may not work on the non-PPA 3rd party repos you've installed (though you can try), and
    2. even ppa-purge may fail if you are already in dependency hell.

    But let's try unchecking everything first, proceeding to next step only if necessary.

    Re: 'Error: BrokenCount>0'

    After unchecking all 3rd party dependencies, I ran sudo apt-get install -f and then ran the command line above and it worked out perfectly!
    Thank you so much for your patience and advice!

    I'm afraid you are only half done at this point.

    If you haven't done so, it's time to consider removing some (or all) of those PPAs and outside repos because as soon as you turn them on, one or more of them will go back to making trouble for you. This link gives a good brief description of and instructions for ppa-purge, which removes not only the PPA but all the apps and associated dependency conflicts that may have been installed by it and that are the cause of your problem.
