    Question Trying to install an antivirus, but libssl0.9.8 is missing and cannot be installed

    Good afternoon, I have installed Kali Linux (Debian) one week ago and for one week I tried to install an antivirus, Comodo more precisely and everytime I try to install the package it always ends into an error. The terminal always show up the following message:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    cav-linux : Depends: libssl0.9.8 (>= 0.9.8m-1) but it is not installable
    I tried multiple codes, but it was always unsucceful.
    The full conversation:
    root@Anonymous:~# sudo dpkg -i cav-linux_x64.deb
    dpkg: error: cannot access archive 'cav-linux_x64.deb': No such file or directory
    root@Anonymous:~# sudo dpkg -i /root/Desktop/cav-linux_x64.deb
    (Reading database ... 303777 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to unpack .../root/Desktop/cav-linux_x64.deb ...
    Unpacking cav-linux (1.1.268025-1) over (1.1.268025-1) ...

    Uninstallation succeed!

    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of cav-linux:
    cav-linux depends on libssl0.9.8 (>= 0.9.8m-1); however:
    Package libssl0.9.8 is not installed.

    dpkg: error processing package cav-linux (--install):
    dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    Errors were encountered while processing:

    You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    cav-linux : Depends: libssl0.9.8 (>= 0.9.8m-1) but it is not installable
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

    Note, selecting 'cav-linux' instead of '/root/Desktop/cav-linux_x64.deb'
    cav-linux is already the newest version (1.1.268025-1).
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.

    Apparently, libssl0.9.8 is utorrent after checking on internet. So since I "knew" what program this libssl0.9.8 was, I tried to install utorrent, once again it was unsucceful, I can't even install utorrent.
    So what should I do? I tried many things, but each time it wasn't working, I even verified on many forums to get this fixed (40% of them being ubuntu forums since kali debian forums are rare). Should I re-install kali and make sure the installation is correctly done?
    Thanks for the help provided.

    aptitude install -f
    should fix your problem .
    Aptitude will show you some options to solve the issue , and 1 of them should be to remove that program , select that one .

    you can also use dpkg to remove that program .
    dpkg -p nameofthepackage
