It is always a good idea to back up configuration files like /etc/apt/sources.list, so you can revert the changes if needed.

Step-1: Make sure that the restricted and universe repositories are enabled. Hit Alt+F2, type software-properties-gtk and hit Enter.










Step-2: Clean up any partial packages.
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoclean

Step3: Clean up the apt cache.
sudo apt-get autoremove

Step-4: One of the most basic fixes to resolve dependencies problems is to run:
sudo apt-get -f install

Step-5: Update your package list.
sudo apt-get update

Clean up any unneeded dependencies: sudo dpkg --remove -force --force-remove-reinstreq package name
