After downloading Webmin from http://www.webmin.com/deb.html the following errors are returned when trying to install it:
user@host:~$ sudo dpkg -i webmin_1.910_all.deb Selecting previously unselected package webmin. (Reading database ... 316593 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack webmin_1.910_all.deb ...

Then trying to upgrade the local operating gives the following errors:
user@host:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: webmin : Depends: libauthen-pam-perl but it is not installed Depends: apt-show-versions but it is not installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
The solution is to do:
user@host:~$ sudo apt-get --fix-broken install
