[Solved] Broken packages

Fri Feb 22, 2019 8:45 pm

Solved :Reboot then sudo apt-get dist-upgrade seems to have restored normality.

I don't recall having installed anything since my last update and upgrade a few days ago but am now getting unmet dependencies, broken package errors. Is it just me and I have screwed something up somewhere ?

Code: Select all

pi@Pi3B:~$ sudo apt-get update
Hit:1 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian stretch InRelease
Hit:2 http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian stretch InRelease

Same issue on my Pi 3 B+.
Strange my other Pi 3B doesn't seem to be affected...
