Kodi Update problems also manually

Hello,

When I try to update using OSMC after reboot it ends in error. When I do manually I get this:

$ sudo apt-get update

You might want to run ‘apt --fix-broken install’ to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libperl5.24 : Depends: perl-modules-5.24 (>= 5.24.1-3+deb9u6) but 5.24.1-3+deb9u5 is installed
perl : Depends: perl-base (= 5.24.1-3+deb9u6) but 5.24.1-3+deb9u5 is installed

E: Unmet dependencies. Try ‘apt --fix-broken install’ with no packages (or specify a solution).

and when I do that:

And then I’m really at a loss. Somehow, uploading log files doesn’t work either ? Something about unable to find URL.

So I did a copy and paste :

I hope I supplied sufficient information for you to work with!

I wouldn’t worry too much about this. It’s probably a temporary error with your DNS service and will have resolved itself by tomorrow.

If you can’t wait, you could choose a different DNS server and repeat the process.

oh snap… Really ? I will wait this out then for now, thanks !

If it’s still giving that error tomorrow, I’d recommend that you move to a different DNS service. (You can move back later, if you want!)

yea, thanks, I edited the DNS and it’s updating like a breeze. I guess I was not paying attention to the errors that much. “Something wicked happened resolving” should have kinda wake me up.

Kinda misread that as a faulty url somewhere maybe and you guys would say the url changed a while ago. Lol. But in hindsight there were a bit too many unresolvable urls haha it was a bit in my face.

Thanks again !
