This red icon…. It showed up after I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04LTS; I can’t figure out how to ditch it. It seems to be a notification thing. I am at a loss. The icon is this one:
I clicked it and read this:
An error occurred, please run Package Manager from the right-click menu or apt-get in a terminal to see what is wrong. The error message was:
This usually means that your installed packages have unmet dependencies.
Here is Solutions:
We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.
It’s letting you know that the package system is in a broken state (eg. some of the packages are in a broken state). You can try to resolve this by running the following command in a terminal.
sudo apt-get -f install
I got this same red and white warning icon and identical error code after having tried to install the wrong package accidentally (i386 on amd64 – Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) To resolve I…
dpkg --get-selections > ~/Desktop/packagesin terminal to get a list of installed packages
- removed the package that I had just tried to install using the name of the package as appearing in the above list and this command
sudo apt-get purge name-of-package-here
- ran the command above
sudo apt-get -f installthanks tgm4883
- removed some redundant packages with
sudo apt-get autoremove(the suggestion appeared in terminal after running the prior command.) Either here or the command before resulted in the warning/error disappearing
- I then ran
sudo apt-get updatewhich took much longer than usual and everything seems to be back to normal.
Please get correct package name which is been broken. You can use following command to get all package list.
sudo dpkg --get-selections > list.txt
Find correct package name from the list(created in home folder).
And use following command to remove package forcefully.
sudo dpkg --force-all -P PACKAGE NAME
sudo dpkg --force-all -P texlive-pstrick-doc (texlive-pstrick-doc is package name)
Next run update command.
sudo apt-get update
This works for me.
Create a new profile/login. Maybe it’s related to profile only. I tried everything mentioned in all help on diff websites. At the end, I created a new profile and log in. It’s resolved the issue. There is no red circle Icon in the top bar in this profile.
Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
