I have tried to install a few BioLinux packages -> several of the previous packages were 'broken'. After i ran :
apt-get -f install apt-get upgrade apt-get upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information...

I have also tried to reinstall it, updatem all,upgrade,reinstall agai, but i encounter the same issue.
Does anyone know the fix for this ? ( No OS reinstall though)
