    Running apt as root get error

    Trying to run "apt upgrade" as root and it give me error and permission issues

    As root what is happening and where are permission that don't allow root to do anything?

    As root I run apt upgrade and get the following





    root@odroid-nas:~# apt upgrade

    Reading package lists... Done

    Building dependency tree

    Reading state information... Done

    You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:

    libnss-systemd : Depends: systemd (= 245.4-4ubuntu3.13) but 245.4-4ubuntu3.11 is installed

    libpam-systemd : Depends: systemd (= 245.4-4ubuntu3.13) but 245.4-4ubuntu3.11 is installed

    systemd : Depends: libsystemd0 (= 245.4-4ubuntu3.11) but 245.4-4ubuntu3.13 is installed

    systemd-sysv : Depends: systemd (= 245.4-4ubuntu3.13) but 245.4-4ubuntu3.11 is installed

    systemd-timesyncd : Depends: systemd (= 245.4-4ubuntu3.13) but 245.4-4ubuntu3.11 is installed

    E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

    Re: Running apt as root get error

    What permission issues?
    The only issue I see is that the package listing of available updates are out of date, or out of whack.

    Run
    Code:
    apt update
    apt upgrade
    if still issues
    try with
    Code:
    apt full-upgrade
    if still issues, post back what the results are.

    is the output of the command. Did you try that?

    Dependency issues ARE NOT the same as permissions issues. Is there plenty of storage in the correct places to allow the prior upgrades to happen? People often miss that the OS partition is full, but their /home partition has plenty of space.

    Re: Running apt as root get error

    I found this

    in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pms.list was

    #deb https://dev2day.de/pms/ jessie main
    deb https://dev2day.de/pms/ stretch main

    I added # to the second one and the issue went away and got this

    Do you want to continue? [Y/n]

    Re: Running apt as root get error

    If you change any repos, sudo apt update is required before running any other command. If you did that already, then ...

    It would be a good idea to remove any packages that were installed with either jessie or stretch repos. Those aren't from Canonical. Ubuntu software and Debian software isn't always compatible. There are different dependencies and getting into "apt hell" is likely when leaving the Canonical repo farm.

    sudo aptitude
    will provide different resolutions to apt dependency issues. If you don't like the first one, say no and another should be offered. Don't like that one? Say no and another should be offered. Eventually, you may see the solution that removes those Debian repo packages ...

    If not, if it were me, I'd pave the system (nuke it from orbit), learn a lesson, and do a fresh install followed by restoring all my data, settings, and packages that don't use outside repos. Of course, this requires having backups.

    The best way to avoid APT hell (or RPM hell) is not to do things that get you into it.
    • Don't use sources from outside the Canonical repos.
    • Don't download and install .deb files directly.
    • Do patch every week and fix any tiny issue with that process ASAP. Like a tiny leak in a roof, APT issues seldom get better over time.
    • Never attemp a migration to a new release if your system isn't fully patched and fully supported (the current and target releases). This will never fix issue.
    • Do have backups, at least weekly, which can be used to avoid these sorts of issues.
    • Do check the log files for issues at least weekly, if not daily. I use logwatch to filter all the junk so only about 20 lines per system need to be reviewed. Logwatch emails me the items in the system logs that are odd daily, so I don't really get to forget it.


    If I've spent more than 45 minutes trying to solve an issue like this, that is the time it takes me to restore onto a fresh install everything that makes a systems "my system", so I stop working the issue and just nuke it from orbit. The 2nd time around, because whatever I did was less than a week ago, I should know what caused the APT issue and be able to avoid it.

    YMMV.

    Did you check the disk storage available?
