Hello. I'm using elementary OS hera(6), I tried to install elementary tweaks, but in return I got this response,
[email protected]:~$ sudo apt install elementary-tweaks [sudo] password for harshu: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done elementary-tweaks is already the newest version (1.0-0~202010170103~ubuntu6.0.1). You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: elementary-tweaks : Depends: libgranite5 (>= 0.2.0) but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
and after that I have tried doing,

Update: In the app centre there was an OS update and when I tried to install it, it gave me this error code
Code:
Error while installing package: trying to overwrite '/usr/share/metainfo/granite.appdata.xml', which is also in package libgranite-common 6.1.1+r2107+pkg120~ubuntu6.1
