Today I was trying to install a VPN on my Ubuntu System. So when I tried installing it with:
sudo apt-get install <whatever you want to install>
I came across with the following problem:
<pre>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: r-base : Depends: r-base-core (>= 3.4.0-1xenial0) but it is not going to be installed Depends: r-recommended (= 3.4.0-1xenial0) but it is not going to be installed Recommends: r-base-html but it is not going to be installed Recommends: r-doc-html but it is not going to be installed rstudio : Depends: libjpeg62 but it is not going to be installed Depends: libgstreamer0.10-0 but it is not installable Depends: libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0 but it is not installable E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
If you are also facing a similar kind of problem, searched the net
for a while and couldn’t get a solution. Then you are at the right place.
Just copy paste the below code:
sudo apt --fix-broken install sudo apt-get update
I really hope this helps all the new linux users out there.
