Upgrade Debian 9 -> Debian 10: unresolved packages

Postby DebianUser_HH » 2020-12-25 19:50

Hello dear community,

today I finally upgraded my Debian 9 to Debian 10: I used this guide for it:
https://phoenixnap.com/kb/how-to-upgrade-debian-9-stretch-to-debian-10-buster

As I noticed that my screenshot-software "Shutter" is missed, I tried to install it - and encountered error. Synaptic says, it cannot be installed because of the broken packages. Also when I try to refresh update's list, I get error message: cannot lock the list, you have broken packages left.

Can anyone give me a hint, how to resolve those issues? I installed some packages manually (like "zoom"), and I would like to keep them. But generally I try to hold my installtion close to standard. So, those broken packages really bother me.

Thanks in advance,
Andrey

**** me, what an awful "guide". Leave some rude comments on the page then read the official guide instead:

Always best to use the command line when you encounter problems:
Code: Select all
# apt install --fix-broken

If it doesn't work or you're not sure then post the full output here (using code tags).

And yes, the shutter package has been dropped for the buster release. See the "Similar packages" list on the right hand side of the package page for some potential replacements.

Hello Head_on_a_Stick,

I could resolve the issue with "Synaptic" - I had one source still pointing to "stretch" release. After I corrected that source, it worked.
Regards,
