Problem With Unmet Dependencies
I am somewhat new to this whole thing and I recently installed BT4 to my hard drive. I followed a tutorial to update the kernel and one of the steps was apt-get update. This worked except for I cannot install anything because of the following message which I am not sure how to fix...
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
python-scapy: Depends: scapy2 but it is not installed
scapy: Depends: scapy2 but it is not installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
I have tried using apt-get install -f but I get the following error..
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? y
(Reading database ... 234794 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking scapy2 (from .../scapy2_2.1-bt1_all.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/scapy2_2.1-bt1_all.deb (--unpack):

Errors were encountered while processing:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
There is a recent thread on this already. Use the search feature and you will find it.
so basically, from what I could gather through reading, this problem is one that is broken on Backtacks end and it is working on being fix. So eventually i will be able to fix it be doing apt-get update & apt-get dist-upgrade?
