I just uninstalled Chrome via the software manager due to an annoying bug with the console in devtools - thinking that an uninstall and reinstall was worth a try to fix it.
Trying to install it again now, i get this:
$ sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies. google-chrome-stable : Depends: libstdc++6 (>= 4.8.0) but 4.6.3-1ubuntu5 is to be installed Depends: lsb-base (>= 4.1) but 4.0-0ubuntu20.3 is to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
This message is confusing - i don't know why i would have requested an "impossible situation" and i'm not using the unstable distribution. Also " you have held broken packages." - i have held them but i don't at the moment? What is this actually saying?
Here's my OS info:

Grateful for any advice.... Max
