    apt-get upgrade returns dpkg error

    Good day, I'm on a Toshiba Satellite i7 running Linux dual booting with Win10.
    Code:
    root@scallion:~# id; uname -a; lsb_release -a
    
    uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root)
    Linux scallion 4.9.0-kali4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.25-1kali1 (2017-05-04) x86_64 GNU/Linux
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID:	Kali
    Description:	Kali GNU/Linux Rolling
    Release:	kali-rolling
    Codename:	kali-rolling
    Repositories I'm using are:

    Code:
    root@scallion:~# cat /etc/apt/sources.list#deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    # For source package access, uncomment the following line
    #deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    
    # 
    
    #deb http://old.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    # For source package access, uncomment the following line
    #deb-src http://old.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    
    deb http://kali.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://kali.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    My issue is with trying to perform a standard "apt-get upgrade" which generates a bunch of error msgs after trying to install/setup "mariadb-server-10.1". The errors are related to "dpkg"

    The errors look like this:
    Code:
    root@scallion:~# apt --fix-broken install

    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    As can be seen, I've tried to fix any broken installs. I've also tried to fix anything that seems wrong with mariadb-server:

    Code:
    root@scallion:~# apt search mariadb-server-10.1
    Sorting... Done
    Full Text Search... Done

    .
    .
    .
    
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     mariadb-server-10.1
     default-mysql-server
     mysql-server
     kali-linux
     mariadb-server
    Same set of errors.

    Tried a different method:

    Code:
    root@scallion:~# apt-get install mariadb-server
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    mariadb-server is already the newest version (10.1.23-8).

    I also tried to clean up any lingering packages:

    Sana isn't supported anymore. I think repository have been removed about a year or 2 ago (or more).

    Get 2017.1

    Understood.. It's already commented out, if you take another look. Thanks.

    I believe I've rectified the mariadb-server problem. I first cd'd into the directory /var/lib/mysql and backed up everything in there to another directory, in my case I used /var/lib/mysqlbkup . Then I used the command:
    Code:
      sudo apt-get remove --purge mysql-server mysql-client mysql-common
    Then:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    sudo apt-get install mariadb-server
    At which time I was informed that I needed to have the old sana repo enabled in my sources.list file.. So I did that and the update/upgrade went thru ok.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
