problems with installation of gnome-control-center

Asked by felipe ramos kafuri on 2020-12-10

Sup guys my control center has gone and I don't know why, now I need to use the interface but it seems to not be installed, so I tried to use "sudo apt install gnome-control-center" but it returns that are some dependencies missing, and when I try to install this dependencies it says that is already installed.

THIS IS THE MESSAGE

sudo apt-get install gnome-control-center

 gnome-control-center : Depends: language-selector-gnome (>= 0.179~) but it is not going to be installed
                        Recommends: network-manager-gnome (>= 0.9.8) but it is not going to be installed

It seems that the problem is caused by errors in your package management configuration.
There are lots of warnings and errors when running apt update.

please execute the command

find /etc/apt -name '*.list' -exec bash -c 'echo -e "\n$1\n"; cat -n "$1"' _ '{}' \;

and copy/past the output into this question document.

Ok, execute the following commands:

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/precise-updates.list
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ne0sight-ubuntu-chrome-gnome-shell-focal.list

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

this will open the editor with the sources.list configuration file. According to your output it contains only one line

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal main

add the following lines:

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-updates main
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-security main

save the file and close the editor.

And finally re-run the commands

sudo apt update
sudo apt install gnome-control-center

and copy/paste the output that we can check the results.

The root cause was your sources.list configuration
For some unknown reason it was missing some entries that must have been there in the past.

Please note that it might be better to add even more repository sources, it is your choice.
Maybe something like this:

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal main restricted universe multiverse
# deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-updates main restricted universe multiverse
# deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-updates main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-security main restricted universe multiverse
# deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-security main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-backports main restricted universe multiverse
# deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-backports main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu focal partner
# deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu focal partner
