      Package ‘geany’ is not installed, so not removed
      You might want to run ‘apt –fix-broken install’ to correct these.
      The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      util-linux-extra : Breaks: initscripts (< 3.08-2~) but 3.06-4 is to be installed
      E: Unmet dependencies. Try ‘apt –fix-broken install’ with no packages (or specify a solution).

        Hi Lightning77,

        You posted this in Sid upgrades, so I am assuming you are trying to install Sid.

        I am running Sid and have libxft2 installed. I don’t see a libxft in the Sid repos.

        I have initscripts 3.08-7.0antix1 installed.

        You haven’t provided much info about your install.

        Questions:
        (1) Is this a brand new install. I ask this because your post indicates that 1077 packages are available but not upgradable at this time.

        (2) what is the output from
        sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

          Well Thanks for the reply i fixed it by
          dpkg -i –force-overwrite cmd and installed initscripts from /var/cache/apt/archives/ and it asked questions and for both questions i said keep current version of udev and hwclock.sh
