Cant upgrade NGINX, overwrite issue?
Trying to update NGINX:
apt-get upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: nginx : Depends: nginx-core (< 1.9.3-1ubuntu1.1.1~) but 1.9.3-1ubuntu1.2 is installed or nginx-full (< 1.9.3-1ubuntu1.1.1~) but it is not installed or nginx-light (< 1.9.3-1ubuntu1.1.1~) but it is not installed or nginx-extras (< 1.9.3-1ubuntu1.1.1~) but it is not installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
So I try using -f install:
apt-get -f install Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Correcting dependencies... Done The following extra packages will be installed: nginx The following packages will be upgraded: nginx 1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 8 not upgraded.
