Package dependencies cannot be resolved

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts,

I am unable to play an audio file and it requires some plugins and when I try to install some media player packages an error message occurs saying “Package dependencies cannot be resolved”. What should I do next? Have any idea to fix this problem ASAP? Thanks in advance.

Package dependencies cannot be resolved

This error could be caused by required additional software packages which are missing OR not installable. Furthermore there could be a conflict between software packages which are not allowed to be installed at the same time.
