There is a very simple command that re-installs all the distribution packages and reconfigures them automatically. This is particularly helpful when you have done a partial upgrade and eventually have broken the system dependencies tree.

sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh -a

since this command would take a lot of time to process (~1 hour) depending on your hardware in case you have a minor dependency problem you can fix it via

sudo apt-get install -f
