How to resolve this error? apt-get install Software Updater


Hi @satish_malkar,

this seems rather unrelated to ERPNext. The error originates from the ubuntu Software Updater and tells you about broken packages.

Try to run

$ sudo apt-get install -f

and follow the output. If you believe it is linked to ERPNext, can you please comment what happened just before?


Your answer is there in the message plus this would be more appropriate on a forum like Stack Overflow or Ask Ubuntu
