sendmail - cannot install

Postby lappets » 25 May 2014 08:47

I am using Solydx : Update Pack 2014.04.15

Please help, I tried to install sendmail but am getting this message :

the "problem" is that apt can't perform the needed replaces/removals just with the install of sendmail;
you need to install at the same time both sendmail and sendmail-bin
it's replicated bellow in the recorded terminal session i just did
