alot of broken packages after jessie->stretch upgrade

Postby ulukay » 2017-03-19 07:00

hi,

so basically the upgrade process went fine, and produced no errors.
But the zabbix php frontend wasn't working, and i made a "aptitude search zabbix" and found out, that it's "broken"

i reinstall the package, but that didn't help in any way.

the really bad thing is, that "aptitude search '~b'" shows me 106 broken packages!

what i already tried:
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get update
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get install -f
(did not show anything: 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.)

synaptic and use "fix broken packages" -> said it was successful but didnt change anything

starting "aptitude" and pressing "e" for fix broken dependencies
runs for ages, then get killed ....

do you guys have any idea?

ok i fixed the zabbix frontend, and it had nothing to do with it's broken package state
i wonder if those "broken" tags are just cosmetic

i read it now, basically everything mentioned there, i did follow

but i just fixed it, turns out something marked ~400 packages for removal. "ri" status in dpkg

did a :
aptitude install `dpkg -l | egrep '^ri' | awk '{print $2}' | xargs`

and it was fixed in 2 seconds :)
