Phone Contacts, and Messages app not working

I need to reinstall the applications and their deps, to see if this fixes the issue. How do I do so?

If there is a package x that you want to reinstall, then you can do

sudo apt reinstall x

Alternatively, you can explicitly remove it first and then install it again afterwards:

sudo apt remove x
sudo apt purge x
sudo apt install x

(I’m not sure if that would have precisely the same effect as the “apt reinstall”, or if there may be some difference)


I may just have to reflash

Okay, after externally backing up anything important, let me know if you want instructions for reflashing Byzantium or Crimson.

I backed up most everything. I will reflash this evening
