Type password and press 'Enter'
Run the command below on the same opend terminal. It will justify and upgrad any missing or pending package.

sudo apt-get -f install

wait to complete the process. Now type/ run the commands below one be one. Always wait to complete one command.
sudo apt-get –fix-missing install
