Linux mint update problem

Trying to install updates in Linux mint cinnamon and get this message. Now what???

These are the updates.

Hey @Mikeybob!
It appears that some package encountered an issue during the update and the process can’t complete until that is done. I recommend opening up a terminal and typing in:

sudo dpkg --configure -a


sudo apt install -f

Once it finishes its task, do a:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade -y

Then things should work properly.

Ok I did what you showed in your reply and some of the updates installed. I have 2 that didn’t and I got this message. I tried “broken” and Sudo Broken in the terminal, No such command. What next, I’m learning.

Disregard the post about the “Broken” package. I figured it out. Vasileios, thank you so much. We got her going. Everything is lovely again.
