  3. I get the error message

    E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

    then

    E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

    1. Make sure that you are running the commands with "root" privileges.
      If you are doing so, try deleting the lock file as "sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock" and then update.
