I am using 0.4.1 Loki. You are installing from the terminal, so did you do:

sudo apt update


sudo apt install <name-of-package>

You could also do a search to confirm the existence of libgstreamer-plugins-good1.0-0 as:

sudo apt-cache search libgstreamer-plugins

When I do the above my system confirms that libgstreamer-plugins-good1.0-0 is in the repository.

If the above fails, maybe try a general upgrade to reset the system first, as:

sudo apt upgrade

Then try to install your package again.


You can try installing Eddy (via AppCentre). Eddy is a program to help you install .deb packages through a graphical user interface.
