  • i guess I really fried by App Center ... – George Barbaz Apr 19 '17 at 5:03

this MAY work ... just not for my installation ...

  1. on "install packagekit" ... see below
  2. guess I am going to need to think about a clean install
  3. and remember next time to test in a VB environment (my bad)

$ sudo apt install packagekit Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done packagekit is already the newest version (1.1.5-2elementary0.4.2). packagekit set to manually installed. You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: appstream-data-pantheon-icons : Depends: appstream-data-pantheon but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution)
