See in your picture's message, it seems your update notifier didn't have the dependencies that it need. What you can do are reinstall, or you can make it back to the default state. 

If you want to reinstall you can use this code below:


Or to make it back to the default, try this code 

Decide whether reinstall or make your update notifier back to the default,

Hello Monica,

Use any of the following methods to solve this issue. 

  1. Try running this code from a root terminal: apt-get update && apt-get -f install 
     
  2. Or you need to purge and then install, if you want to restore the configuration files to the default state.

    For that, run this code from a root terminal:
    aptitude purge update-notifier 
    aptitude install update-nitifier
     

  3. Or fix the problem by running this code. 
    sudo chmod o+r /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99synaptic

    Use this if in case of a broken dependencies.
    sudo dpkg – – configure -a

Hope one of these will help in fixing the issue!
