please help me in solving this error. I am new to ubuntu

Please run 'sudo apt-get -f install' (without the quotes) on a Terminal. That should fix your problem.

Hi, I have tried to run "sudo apt-get -f install', but problem is not resolved.

I am having the same problem. Tried N number of solutions but was not able to resolve. Is there any update/resolution.

allhuda (allhuda) said : #5

try this one

katya@Tyara ~ $ cd /var/lib/dpkg/info
katya@Tyara /var/lib/dpkg/info $ sudo rm crossplatformui.*
katya@Tyara /var/lib/dpkg/info $ sudo apt-get remove --purge crossplatformui

I have same problem.
I tried all the steps given by https://gist.github.com/Brainiarc7/eb140201c25819ab8a5763dc5bee436d
Last step that is <code>sudo cp /etc/mysql/myslq.cnf /etc/mysql/my.cnf.fallback</code>
returns error as
 cp: cannot stat '/etc/mysql/myslq.cnf': No such file or directory.

I tried to open the file and could open the file. So file exists.
Any help is really appreciated.
I am new to LAMP.

Can you help with this problem?
