I have installed Kali linux on my Gemini pda. It boot up fine and works without problems.
I tried to run
apt-get update and then
apt-get upgrade, but the second command fail all the time.
I get the
the following packages have unmet dependencies for
vim-tiny. I tried to run
apt --fix-broken install but this won't work, since I get the prompt if I want to fix
vim and I get again the same unmet packages error,
Tried as last resort to remove vim, but this won't work either, I still get the error about dependencies. Tried to apt remove all the vim packages without any luck.
also tried to run
apt-get clean && apt-get purge but even this didn't fix the problem.
Not sure why is not possible to update at this point. This is what I get when I run
The following packages have unmet dependencies: vim: Depends: vim-runtime(= 2:8.1.0875-2) but 2:8.1.0875-1 is installed vim-gtk : Depends: vim-runtime (= 2:8.1.0875-2) but 2:8.1.0875-1 is installed vim-tiny: Depends: vim-common (= 2:8.1.0875-1) but 2:8.1.0875-2 is installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try `apt --fix-broken install` with no packages (or specify a solution).
EDIT: Seems that no matter what I try to install, or remove, that message continue to pop up. I did look into forcefully remove VIM, but it seems it is part of the Kali complete packaging set, so removing that may cause issues to other apps that rely on that package. Tried to force install, force uninstall, nothing did work.
I may end up either going back to Debian, or re-installing again the distribution on the Gemini, and avoid to install VIM to start with (followed the instructions on the install page of the Gemini kali distro), by not installing all the other packages (the distro come with the top-10 packages I believe; not sure since this is the first time I use Kali, my usual distribution was Debian in the past).
