Broken Packages

I had a broken package today, and the update manager said something along the lines of 'you need to manually fix your broken package with sudo.... ', so I copied it into the terminal and ran it. It would be a lot easier to have a button on the pop up box which would run that command rather than making you copy it into the terminal.

I'm marking this idea "Considered"

You can also fix this by hitting the refresh button then install the package.

as long as your prompted for administrative password knowing what you're entering it for I have no problems with this.

ARGH thats so annoying, i might be trying to install, filezilla or somthing and all of a sudden i get packages missing please run sudo apt-get update to get new package details.

i still do it and nothing >.> i move to the previous version and it works. if i reload the mint again it works.

so a few automated updating features should be a little more straight foward

I think its a good idea, and on the track of simplification.

It seems like a logical and obvious think to be done. +1

It seems nothing wrong to click a button to make something the very system says that needs to be done anyway... +1

Good idea. Makes another standard procedure more userfriendly and oneclick-able instead of using the almighty terminal.

Yes, I think a more seamless transition would be more appropriate.
