Here is a full bug report I filed 7 hours ago in Launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/software-center/+bug/1327169
When I try to install any software from the software center (not just synaptics package manager), the little window appears telling me that those items must be removed. Its always those same 3 items. ubuntu version: ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit software center version: software-center: Installed: 13.10-0ubuntu4.1 Candidate: 13.10-0ubuntu4.1 Version table: *** 13.10-0ubuntu4.1 0 500 http://cy.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates/main amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status 13.10-0ubuntu4 0 500 http://cy.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/main amd64 Packages the expected result is to install the synaptics package manager (or any other software) and make it available for me to use without a hitch. Instead, I get that annoying pop up window telling me i need to remove those items to install anything. It is followed by other pop up windows ProblemType: Bug DistroRelease: Ubuntu 14.04 Package: software-center 13.10-0ubuntu4.1 ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 3.13.0-27.50-generic 3.13.11 Uname: Linux 3.13.0-27-generic x86_64 NonfreeKernelModules: wl ApportVersion: 2.14.1-0ubuntu3.2 Architecture: amd64 CurrentDesktop: Unity Date: Thu Jun 5 13:35:07 2014 InstallationDate: Installed on 2014-06-04 (0 days ago) InstallationMedia: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS "Trusty Tahr" - Release amd64 (20140417) PackageArchitecture: all SourcePackage: software-center UpgradeStatus: No upgrade log present (probably fresh install)
I think everything is covered there, but I'll write some stuff here too. Basically, when I go to the software center and click Install on any program I want, a really nasty message pops up telling me that I must remove 3 multilib files to download that software. It does this for anything I try to install, with the same 3 files in the list. When I click on Install Anyway, another nasty message pops up this time telling me that "New software can't be installed, because there is a problem with the software currently installed. Do you want to repair this problem now?" I click on Repair, enter my password and it starts downloading something. Then another pop up message appears, this time "Package operation failed The installation or removal of a software package failed." I click OK on that, and the whole process starts anew.
Please help me as much as you can, I am really keen on this Ubuntu release, I would love to use it properly once again.
