The above is the result of
apt-get upgrade -f dpkg. I appreciate any help you can give on this issue!
Edit: Here are a few more details. I am using Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon 640bit. Many programs seem to be crashing and Synaptic says that python2.7 and libpython2.7 are broken, but is unable to fix them. Every attempt to fix them has resulted in E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1).
I ran apt-get update and then apt-get upgrade -f dpkg and got the result above.
