Re: [PLUG] Dependencies and Ubuntu 16.04


On this particular machine it has a fresh install of ubuntu 16.04 installed about 2 weeks ago. When running the dist upgrade, I get errors at they end as follows:

It's odd typing that, since it's my name as well, but regardless, good point. Eric, wanna give that a shot and see?

Many times when large dependency issues arise, I'll do a dist-upgrade.

# apt-get update && apt-get -s dist-upgrade

to do a recon run and see what it'll do.

I was recently having issues with perl and cups. I run debian sid, with
stable, testing, and sid all active in my sources.list. I ran a
dist-upgrade and it corrected all of my dependency issues.

Not saying it'll fix your issue, but it's helped me in the past.

good luck,
