i have the following question: i tried to install python 3 on my PC with Pop!_OS and did it via terminal.
“sudo apt update upgrade” to update and install the updates
then i entered:
“sudo apt install software-properties-common” where i got the following error:
"Waiting for cache lock: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend. It is heWaiting for cache lock: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend. It is held by process 1174 (packagekitd) "
i ignored this one and added the repository and since this worked i then tried the following:
[email protected]:/home/whoami# sudo apt install python3.7

You might want to run ‘apt --fix-broken install’ to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gir1.2-mutter-10 : Depends: libmutter-10-0 (= 42.2-0ubuntu1pop1~1656366415~22.04~8e50951) but 42.3-1ubuntu1pop1~1658401497~22.04~928bf97 is to be installed
python3.7 : Depends: python3.7-minimal (= 3.7.13-1+jammy2) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libpython3.7-stdlib (= 3.7.13-1+jammy2) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: mime-support but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try ‘apt --fix-broken install’ with no packages (or specify a solution).
[email protected]:/home/whoami# sudo apt --fix broken install
E: Command line option --fix is not understood in combination with the other options
[email protected]:/home/whoami# sudo apt fix broken install pyhton3.7
