Today I installed Visual Studio Code and was facing unmet dependencies.
sudo dpkg -i code_1.9.1-1486596246_i386.deb Selecting previously unselected package code. (Reading database ... 92267 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack code_1.9.1-1486596246_i386.deb ... Unpacking code (1.9.1-1486596246) ... dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of code: code depends on libnss3; however: Package libnss3 is not installed. dpkg: error processing package code (--install): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils (0.22-1) ... Processing triggers for mime-support (3.58) ... Errors were encountered while processing: code
First I tried to install libnss3 manually.
sudo apt-get install libnss3 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: libnss3 : Depends: libnspr4 (>= 2:4.12) but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
So I went with ‘apt-get -f install’
sudo apt-get -f install Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Correcting dependencies... Done The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required: rinetd Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove it. The following extra packages will be installed: libnspr4 libnss3 The following NEW packages will be installed: libnspr4 libnss3 0 upgraded, 2 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. 1 not fully installed or removed.

Why is rinetd not longer required? I didn’t uninstall anything. I expect rinetd it to be an important part of Whonix.
Should I continue with
apt-get autoremove ?
