    you might want to run apt-get -f install to correct these
    the following packages have unmet dependencies:
    libc-dev-bin: depends: libc6 (> 2.24) but 2.19-18 is installed
    libc-dev : depends: libc6 (= 2.24-17) but 2.19-18 is installed
    locales : depens: libc-bin (> 2.24) but 2.19-18 is installed
    e: unmet dependencies. try using -f.

    Preconfiguring packages ...

    Note: root s PATH should usually contain /usr/local/sbin, /usr/sbin and /sbin
