Repo issues in 16.04.5LTS

Lutz Andersohn
All,
I am wondering whether anybody else has these issues:
I did a fresh install of 16.04.5LTS.
updated my repositories
- I cannot install gimp. Broken packages because libgegl. It essentially conflicts with its own libgegl-dev package
- I cannot install build-essential: conflict with the installed gcc and libstdc6 and the -dev. There is no way to resolve these packages that I can see.
affects any package that even remotely depends on any of these.
I tried archive.ubuntu.com/archive and us.ubuntu.archive.com/archive with the same sad outcome.
Some posts on for example askubuntu have been shown down as being not reproducible.
Trust me, it's very reproducible for those effected by it and makes this version basically useless for me.
For example,HPLIP requires build-essential, so I cannot even set up my printer.


Any help would be appreciated (and I do not consider "upgrade to 18.04" any help at all)

Lutz Andersohn

Hi Lutz,

There're so many variations in installation that without all the details
it might hard to reproduce, or even to know, what happened. I can assure
you that gimp on xubuntu 16.04 lts does worked. :-)

 From your information on the conflicts (gcc versions incompatible, ...)
there might be a lot of mess to clean up. Maybe your 16.04.5 installer
is already too old (released on 2018-07-31) to catch up with all the
upgrades. Instead of looking for solutions to clean up, it may save you
time by trying a complete new install (Don't install over. Format the
partitions again.) with the latest 16.04.6 iso (released 2019-02-27).
