If I ran into this I would try :
sudo apt-get clean to clear the apt cache. Then run
sudo apt-get update to update the package list to the latest.
sudo apt-get -f install Then
sudo dpkg --configure -a to try to fix any installations that didn’t finish and then finally
sudo apt-get upgrade To try again.
Of course I would only move on if the previous command runs without errors
Try this and if you run into any errors during the process, update your question with the command and error you got stuck on.
