Ubuntu – Errors were encountered while processing: jitsi-meet-tokens


I've been using Ubuntu for a few years now, but I just installed Version 16.04, and I've been having a lot of issues. I'm not a command line expert, but I tried to install some software last night, and it is creating issues (and also not working properly).

When I run sudo apt-get -f install, I see the following message:

Reading package lists... Done

Removing jitsi-meet-tokens (1.0.962-1) ...
dpkg: error processing package jitsi-meet-tokens (--remove):
 subprocess installed post-removal script returned error exit status 10
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Can someone help me figure out what I need to do to get this resolved? I'm fine with deleting jitsi, but I'm not sure if that will correct the problem.

Currently there is a red circle with a line through it in the upper right corner that indicates there may be installed packages with unmet dependencies.

If nothing else works, try this. First, back up your status file:

sudo cp /var/lib/dpkg/status /var/lib/dpkg/status_bk

Open the current status file using your favourite text editor

sudo nano /var/lib/dpkg/status

Find and remove all of the text about the package you want to remove, in this case:
