I've been trying to install the CoreBird Twitter application and have had horrible luck with getting it to compile and then I came across a deb (from here) and tried to install it that way.
However, I got this error:
corebird depends on libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.41.1); however: Package libglib2.0-0:amd64 is not configured yet. corebird depends on libgtk-3-0 (>= 3.13.7); however: Version of libgtk-3-0:amd64 on system is 3.10.8-0ubuntu1.4.
So, I tried to be smart and manually track down and install those libraries. I found the correct deb file, but when I ran
dpkg -i for the
libglib deb, I got this:
pkg: error processing package libglib2.0-0:amd64 (--install): package libglib2.0-0:amd64 2.42.0-2 cannot be configured because libglib2.0-0:i386 is at a different version (2.40.2-0ubuntu1)
and something else about not being able to configure it because libglib2.0-0:amd64 was the wrong version.
This is where I went wrong. I, without thinking, ran
sudo apt-get remove libglib2.0-0:amd64.
So, obviously, it created a crap ton of dependency issues and told me to run
sudo apt-get -f install. I did that, and now I get this:
sudo apt-get -f install Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Correcting dependencies... failed.

E: Unable to correct dependencies
glib 2.42.0-2 package installed after I removed the previously installed 2.40.2, and is now causing all sorts of issues. Obviously, this is an issue.
Does anyone know how to fix this issue?
/var/log/dist-upgrade/apt.log file is empty:
cat /var/log/dist-upgrade/apt.log cat: /var/log/dist-upgrade/apt.log: No such file or directory
and the command
dpkg --get-selections | grep hold returns nothing:
$ dpkg --get-selections | grep hold $
This question is not a duplicate. I can't install
aptitude even if I wanted to (same error.)
