E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages
this happens with all packages that have dependencies. My system is blocked. I can't install anything. Doesn't matter which package. sudo apt-get update goes perfect no errors whatsoever.
I tried most solutions offered in forums.
sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade, Sudo apt-get -f install, sudo apt-get -f remove, sudo apt-get --fix-broken install, sudo apt-get clean, sudo apt-get autoclean, sudo apt-get autoremove,sudo dpkg --configure -a, sudo apt-get update,
etc... etc.... etc....
tried to bypass it by "aptitude" and a lot more
I checked hold packages, tried synaptic.edit=> fix broken packages.
Synaptic can't find anything broken. Also apt-get update ends clean.?? But every attempt to install a package with apt-get install or aptitude, where a dependency is needed, i get "...is needed but it is not going to be installed" and "Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages."
If synaptic doesn't find anything and ap-get update runs ok, Where is that broken package? This silly thing,blocks all possibility to install anything. Even when I remove an installed package and remove the dependencies, and try to reinstall it again, i get the error.
I was happy with my installation. I don't want to reinstall the os. Help.
lemonslice, Thanks for your response. I tried to add it in the text field but it became a mess. I created a txt file. Find the info you requested here in this linked file:
