I downloaded the latest version of Debian(Stretch) today. When I try to do apt-get, I get a message that chromium-common is needing to be fixed and recommends either auto remove or apt --fix-broken install. fix-broken says :
The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
Use ‘sudo apt autoremove’ to remove it.
The following additional packages will be installed:
chromium-l10n chromium-shell chromium-driver chromium-widevine
The following packages will be upgraded:
but when i say to install, it fails with:
dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/chromium_63.0.3239.84-1~deb9u1rcnee0~stretch+20171227_armhf.deb (–unpack):
trying to overwrite ‘/usr/lib/chromium/natives_blob.bin’, which is also in package chromium-common 61.0.3163.100-2rcnee0~stretch+20170927
dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
When i attempt apt autoremove, it says:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
chromium : Depends: chromium-common (= 60.0.3112.78-1rcnee0~stretch+20170806) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try ‘apt --fix-broken install’ with no packages (or specify a solution).
When I try any other apt-get for any other packages having nothing to do with chromium, I get the message above saying try fix-broken… so apt-get is unusable at this time.
VNC into BBB and chromium doesn’t work.
Anyone have any ideas how to resolve?
Thanks for any assistance.
