Appcenter can't update even though I've tried to update multiple times. It still shows that there is 1 component to update. Also tried to update in command line, it says everything is up to date. How can I fix this?

    Can you please run sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade in Terminal and then add the output to your question?

OK DUDES & DUDESS'S! I got you.. I had the exact same issue, and I finally found this on a reddit post.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get build-dep build-essential

last one is the trick!! enter all in terminal, with your password, and awesome..
