I was trying to install elementary-tweaks using the instructions from their github page.

I first did a sudo apt install software-properties-common.

Then sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks && sudo apt install elementary-tweaks

Which got me this error :

sudo apt install elementary-tweaks
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
elementary-tweaks is already the newest version (1.0-0~202010170103~ubuntu6.0.1).
You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 elementary-tweaks : Depends: libgranite5 (>= 0.2.0) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

I have tried several solutions from this askUbuntu page but it didn't help.

  • The apt --fix-broken install doesn't help too. Commented Jun 9, 2022 at 3:22

elementary-tweaks are not supported in 6.x versions of elementaryOS. You should be installing pantheon-tweaks from https://github.com/pantheon-tweaks/pantheon-tweaks.
