On a side note, that would help the as well, if they include the DE name in their search key words,...
In any event, it is difficult to figure out which Icon to click these days, on these modern systems. I remember when things were simple and easy.
Any way, if the OP does not understand or like the instruction given here,
there are plenty more available.

That error indicates that some other process is using and locked down apt (package management) first. This can be on the command line, Synaptic, or some other software manager like gnome-software. You need to close those down first.

There can be only one.

persepolis is a frontend to aria2, which is in the debian repos.
have you considered:
a) using another frontend that is also in the repos
b) using aria2 directly without the frontend

if this is unacceptable to you (no shiny GUI), you could try cloning the github repo directly:
Code: Select all
git clone https://github.com/persepolisdm/persepolis

being essentially a python script, it shouldn't pose unsurmountable installation problems.
on that page you also find more info.

Yes, I use a shiny backported uGet 2.2.0 GUI frontend, which I prefer over Perseopolis.
