    The Package System is Broken

    Ubuntu Mate 20.04.1 - I run nthe Sodtware Updater, it gives a list of updates to instal.
    I click on "Install now" and I get "The Package System is Broken".
    How do I repair it?

    Sudo apt update:
    Code:
    254 packages can be upgraded. Run 'apt list --upgradeable' to see them
    Sudo apt full-upgrade: Comes up with
    Code:
    try 'apt --fix-broken install"
    So going to try that and report back.

    All worked OK - the only thing that went "wrong" is that the initial full-upgrade hung, so I had to restart the machine and issue the command again.
    All now updated properly. Thanks for the input.
