I was trying to upgrade debian 9 to 10 but when I tried to run sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo apt-get full-upgrade, they all got this error message:
optiplex@optiplex:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: linux-image-generic-lts-xenial : Depends: linux-firmware but it is not installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
I tried running
apt --fix-broken install
but then i just got this error message:

Done The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required: linux-image-4.9.0-8-amd64 Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove it.

Could anybody help me with this?
I was going through the instructions given by GAD3R but I have a slightly different error message this time whenever I trie to do anything with apt:
dpkg: error processing package snapd (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing: snapd E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I got as far as doing
apt-get upgrade but I keep getting errors:
