Failure to install various softwares , Same message appears
« on: April 09, 2019, 06:19:50 pm »
Hello,  I'm relatively new to the Linux world.  When I first intalled the new Mint syatem on my laptop I had an issue with getting the mouse pad working. Did the research and fixed the problem.  Whilst doing this I installed various programs recommended on forums to get it working.  I'm not sure if some of those programs might now be blocking certain gaming emulators. I tried to run Minecraft and it won't work. And whenever I try to install something new I get this same message:

I'm not sure what it means or how to solve the problem. This message come up with anything I try to install unrelated to mincraft. But as you can see in the message it seems to be connected with the minecraft software.  Please can you help me?
Thank you
