No, the errors show that APT is refusing to install packages so all the OP has to do is remove the offending lines from /etc/apt/sources.list{,.d/whatever.list} and run `apt update` (as root).

Debian Stable should not be combined with other releases. If you're trying to install software that isn't available in the current Debian Stable release, it's not a good idea to add repositories for other Debian releases. The problems might not happen right away, but the next time you install updates.

The reason things can break is because the software packaged for one Debian release is built to be compatible with the rest of the software for that release. For example, installing packages from buster on a stretch system could also install newer versions of core libraries including libc6. This results in a system that is not testing or stable but a broken mix of the two.

Repositories that can create a FrankenDebian if used with Debian Stable:

Debian testing release (currently buster)
Debian unstable release (also known as sid)
Ubuntu, Mint or other derivative repositories are not compatible with Debian!
Ubuntu PPAs


So this is another FrankenDebian, and not Debian any more, maybe change the title to
" I was using Debian Stretch 9.4, but then I made a FrankenDebian "
What do I do now ? :mrgreen:


This is how people learn. This is how I learn. I make mistakes, then I correct them. Even if I have to go back and reinstall the operating system. Laugh about it :roll: meh :roll:

I don't have a masters degree in software engineering. I just try new things and take risks.

But fortunately, you don't need to re-install. We all learn from our mistakes, or most of us do any way.

Yes, if I can fix them. But if you don't want to help, then there's no need to poke fun at me. I thoroughly searched for days through google for a duplicate of this exact problem. I only see things about microphone auto mute features messing with audio. Or hidden settings in pulseaudio that was lowering the volume. I tried those things to no avail and many others.

I did not cause this. I did not modify my machine so that I can have fancy stuff and mess around with linux capabilities like an expert. It was like this from the getgo. The volume problem i'm having. I don't think i'm going to get much help here. Seems like I am being pointed in another direction (blame, humor) so I have to go back to trying to figure it out on my own.

You're not paying attention, or being purposefully difficult. There is /etc/apt/sources.list and a subdirectory /etc/apt/sources.list.d that has some other files in it that add to your sources. You added them either yourself, or some ubuntu thing you installed added them.

Everybody knows this because you posted "W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net/nilarimogard/webupd8/ubuntu cosmic"

That is not a debian repo, nothing in debian would do that.

So just own up, what did you do to cause this?

p.s. check out the sample in /usr/share/doc/apt/examples/sources.list

Well, apt is having present difficulty for sure, but that does not mean something wasn't previously installed that might be the cause.

Yes I see files in that subdirectory. I didn't look in it. I wasn't paying attention to that extra .d

Do I delete them all? I don't remember adding any. I may have when I wasn't paying attention but I assure I had volume problems before this.

You may have added them when you wasn't paying attention? LMAO

That's priceless!! you deserve an honorable mention. Too bad the thread is locked.

p.s. "like this from the getgo" was good too, but you're busted.

It's already frustrating as it is that i'm reaching out for assistance and people like you just want to have fun with it. Is this enlarging your ego? You feel like you're everyone's daddy telling them they need to pay attention and mocking them?

I just want to fix the problems, not cause anymore. If I made a mistake, help me fix it. Or go away.

Tell the truth, stop wasting honest people's time. I love linux, I see people all day trolling the forums. Get real. Have you tried a plain debian stable install without the ubuntu crap? Why didn't you tell people about your apt problem to begin with?

And wazzup with the large font bold face in your first post? pretty stylish, yo.

Okay I made mistakes, help me fix them.
I KNOW the apt problem is not the source of my volume problem.
It's just font, get over it.
I'm not trolling. You are.

Okay, here's my advice:

On a clean debian stable install:
Confirm the volume is changed when headphone plugged in after purging pulseaudio

p.s. yea i'm your daddy

p.p.s.stillwaiting to find out what the ubuntu thing(s) you installed when you wasn't paying attention? might be in /var/log/apt/history.log
