    Error when performing 'apt-get upgrade' on a Raspberry Pi 0

    I just did an apt-get update and then apt-get upgrade on my Raspberry Pi Zero (Rpi0). During the apt-get upgrade process, it spits out an error message (E: Unmet dependencies) as shown below and recommended to run apt --fix-broken install. The later also spits out some error messages (see below) and did not fix the problem. Has anyone seen this and can recommend for a solution?
    Code:
    [root@kali:/root 2%] # apt-get update
    Hit:1 http://archive-7.kali.org/kali kali-rolling InRelease

    You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     libcoarrays-dev : Depends: libcaf-mpi3 (= 2.2.0-1) but it is not installed
     open-coarrays-bin : Depends: libcaf-mpi3 (= 2.2.0-1) but it is not installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

    You can try to "force", I think -f option with apt/apt-get. Not sure if it will work. In the future, I would recommend to use dist-upgrade instead of just upgrade.

    Other than that, you can try reinstalling 2018.3 and update from there. The 0w image will work.

    I already tried that to no avail, unfortunately.

    That's what I first thought. Then, I started to think if we can't fix this, what will happen if I run into the same situation once reinstalling process is done?
