I was trying to remove Clementine but the problem is that the apt thinks sees that some packages require packages that the dpkg won't execute because of a conflict. I tried with apt --fix-broken install but it doesn't work. Can you help me?

This is what I got:

    Did you ever mix other repositories than official Debian? That's the usual cause for this when newer packages than available conflict and won't be replaced. You can try to force Debian stable to install over other (newer) versions by temporarily pinning stable preferences to >= 1001 (instead of default 500) in apt pinning (man apt_preferences or see wiki.debian.org/AptPreferences). Check also the output of apt-cache policy or apt-cache policy packagegivingtrouble. Also having 23 packets half installed isn't helping (and requires this --fix-broken for apt to even want to work) – A.B Oct 8 '17 at 15:22
  • Please add the output of cat /etc/apt/sources.list and cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* – GAD3R Oct 9 '17 at 14:31
