Hi im pretty new to Deepin OS and i was using it with no issues until now, when i went to reboot the PC i got stopped because unattended-upgrade-shutdown was running or something, and it said stop updates or finish before restarting, so i went to the update manager and clicked it, it came up as Dependency error, failed to detect the... so i clicked it again and try to switch internet and everything but it still came up with the same result. So next i ran some commands to get some info that i ofc dont understand anything of but i thought it may help since i saw something similar in another forum. Anyways if anyone can help me that would be great, here are the commands i ran and the info it gave me back:

for i in /etc/apt/sources.list{,.d/*}; do echo file: $i; cat $i; echo ====; done
