I was running the 'sudo apt update' command when the connection was interrupted, now an error that my dependencies are broken keeps showing up, how can I repair for the broken dependencies and do I have to do this as a root user or just a normals user? what is the way to go about this in terminal?

Hello,

Such task can be done easily from the “Terminal”.

1. Start “Terminal”.

2. Run the command:
sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install gtkorphan
sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude upgrade
