Broken apt-get dependencies


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to upgrade my RED-Brick with apt-get and I'm getting dependency issues with perl.


apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
perl : Depends: perl-base (= 5.20.2-3+deb8u3) but 5.20.2-3+deb8u6 is installed
        Recommends: rename but it is not installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.


I'm on jessie so should still be getting updates:


lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:	Debian
Description:	Debian GNU/Linux 8.6 (jessie)
Release:	8.6
Codename:	jessie


I've tried clearing out the apt-cache but no joy.


Any ideas?
