Unable to Install Linux Packages?

I ran into this after a while with my new Linux Mint setup… eventually you won’t be able to install any programs either with the package manager or using ‘apt-get’ in a terminal.

A solution was posted to the Ubuntu launchpad site, but I’ll reproduce it here. Just run these two commands and you’ll be good to go!

sudo dpkg --clear-avail
sudo apt-get update
