Transaction failed: The package system is broken

The Package system is broken

Check if you are using third party repositories. If so disable them, since they are a common source of problems.
Furthermore run the following command in a Terminal: apt-get install -f
Transaction failed: The package system is broken
The following packages have unmet dependencies:

oracle-java8-installer: Depends: java-common (>= 0.24) but it is not installed

Not sure what to do can anyone help?

There have been a lot of java issues. Open java is not the official java package. To install to Linux you have to register your details with Oracle, the proprietary licence holder of java.

Swarf is totally right. You do not want to install Java from the Ubuntu repositories.
This guide will help you with each step:

If you are missing a dependency, try to install in terminal and when it says "Leaving unconfigured. Dependency not satisfied" try in terminal as your next line:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get --fix-broken install
