Re: unable to upgrade packages

#4 Post by ruwolf »

Source of your problem is that you have mixed repositories (old-stable & stable).

Your official debian (and VirtualBox, QGIS & CRAN) repository is stretch (previously stable, but currently old-stable), but sublimetext, skype, opera, deb-multimedia are stable, which was stretch, but currently it is buster.

You should use only one type of repository names.
Either by stability (oldoldstable, oldstable, stable, testing, unstable), or by Toy Story names (jessie, stretch, buster, bullseye, sid).
Because stability is shifting, what was previously testing, it is stable, now,
what was previously stable, it is oldstable, now, etc...

OK, you read this thread, right? And you saw the information that we needed from the original poster to solve the issue, yet you don't provide the same info from the start?

Instead of hijacking this thread, please start a new one, and provide the same information in your first post. At the very least, install inxi and give us the output of "inxi -r" in the terminal.
