    Can't uninstall Tor Browser after installing it with Ubuntu Software

    When I try to uninstall Tor Browser I get a message saying

    Unable to remove "Tor Browser":
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:


    Now I don't know what I should do to uninstall it.

    I installed it with Ubuntu Software, I just searched for Tor Browser and clicked Install. Version is Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

    Go to Ubuntu Software again and select installed apps then click Remove button to the said TOR you installed.

    This was the first thing I tried and that's how I got this error message.

    Re: Can't uninstall Tor Browser after installing it with Ubuntu Software

    Something about your package management is messed up and you package manager refuses to do anything until you tell it how to fix it. So, let's find out what exactly is going on:
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install -f
    Can you post the full output of those commands?

    Re: Can't uninstall Tor Browser after installing it with Ubuntu Software

    Try to use Synaptic Package Manager if you have one to remove the apps, or type
    Code:
    apt list
    in terminal and show us the result here wrap with code.

    Re: Can't uninstall Tor Browser after installing it with Ubuntu Software

    There's some unexpected output from sudo apt update, but, as the tools itself notes, this may be caused by a mirror sync in progress. Trying again may fix it, unless there really is a problem with that server.

    The output from sudo apt install -f shows no errors. Is the problem still there?
