I have been beside myself over PureOS updates (or lack thereof) as it is, but apparently they have finally put me in bad situation. I am current through 12/27.
I have sporadically returned to modifying the Firefox apparmor profile, which allows universal ‘read.’ I decided to run: aa-complain again this morning. I missed it, but apparently apparmor-utils got uninstalled. When I tried to run sudo apt install apparmor-utils to see why, I get the following (truncated output):
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
apparmor-utils : Depends: python3-apparmor (= 2.12-4pureos1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Going down the dependency thread using commands yields:
python3-apparmor : Depends: python3-libapparmor (>= 2.12) but it is not going to be installed
python3-libapparmor : Depends: python3 (< 3.7) but 3.7.1-3 is to be installed
But, python 3.7.1-3 is installed. Does that message really mean those packages need something less than 3.7? I am not sure how to interpret that output.
I have seen a lot of python updates recently.
Suggestions are appreciated. I have seen some really convoluted ones in my searches, and I really would hate to try some of those. I am a bit afraid of tampering with /var/lib/dpkg/status, because I do not know what I am doing. Thanks.
PS. I should have mentioned that I only have one other repository for the OpenCPN package that I use for sailing. There have been no updates to it in a long while. I do untar Firefox and Thunderbird to /opt. The latter’s version has been in buster but not in green.
