Sometimes when you install manually some packages, they are broken and the command
sudo apt --fix-broken install
does not works !
In this case, 2 steps to correct:
- Soft correction
sudo apt-get update --fix-missing sudo dpkg --configure -a sudo apt-get install -f
If the problem of a broken package still exist you can try the hard correction: Edit the dpkg status file manually
- Hard correction
Edit the dpkg status file manually:
sudo nano /var/lib/dpkg/status
Locate the corrupt package, and remove the whole block of information about it and save the file.
To control, if all is ok:
sudo apt install
