From what I've read here, it seems the problem relates to dependencies associated with linux-tools-common.
cpufrequtils doesn't have any link (as far as I can see) to linux-tools-common

I don't think that cpufrequtils got installed - the uninstall command couldn't find it.

Trying to install cpufrequtils may have been the first time you noted apt reporting a problem.

The inference I make is that something installed *before* cpufrequtils has caused the dependency issue.

If you search the command line history before cpufrequtils, you may find something.
Or if you were using the GUI, we may need to look into other logs.

Unless we find the root cause, we can't try to fix it.
It may be more efficient to re-install.

I reinstalled linux, didn't have any important files anyway

I was trying to boost my clock speed because my cpu, was running at 1.6ghz, only made things worst :(

Sadly ,the things goes worst when you tried to speed up your cpu...

Yes, reinstall is better but perhaps gaas installed other programs without the terminal, and those packages could be found in your BROWSING HISTORY of your web browser

Well ,that's too personal info but if it's possible you should share the info only about programs, tips you tried and that video of youtube..

First question you need to answer:
What is the goal you are aiming at with cpufrequtils?
In other words: What do you expect to get from it? What real problem you want to solve using this program?
Defining very clearly what you want to get, increases the available choices to do it.
There are lots of programs that do basically the same thing (serve the same purpose).
Choosing the best, bolis down to what do you know to do with it.
Making it simple:
It is unlikely that you will be able to comb your hair, using your shoes. You need a comb to do that.

As a final touch:
Knowing what to do with whatever piece of software, means:
- How do I install it?
- How do I uninstall it?
- How can I use it?
- What kind of trouble can I get into using it?
- How do I fix the system in case it breaks down?
Still! Nobody knows everything about everything.
It applies to me, to you, to anybody on this Forum, including Jerry.
Yet, each one might have an idea.
In order to gather info, you need a starting point.
This is usually the answer to the initial question:
What is the goal I am  aiming at with ... [package name, or program]
In this case,  cpufrequtils.
Here is what it does:
https://packages.debian.org/sid/cpufrequtils
So, this is why I asked you in the previous message if you know enough to tinker with the Linux Kernel.
If you belive that overclocking your CPU will solve anything, you are on a very dangerous path.
It usually leads to frying either the CPU, the RAM or the mainboard. Sometimes, all three.
Unless you are an expert in hardware testing beyond the factory specifications boundaries. Are you?

Best regards, Șerban!
