Apps don't install on 32 Bit Bunsen Labs

Hi,

I just installed Bunsen Linux on an old 32 bit computer.

Everything installed properly and it's working fine.

Unfortunately when trying to install apps from System > Install Applications I keep getting errors for

- Firefox
- Chromium
- Libreoffice

any possible solutions?

PS: Error messages are generally about packages / dependencies that are too old, can't be installed or upgraded etc.

What do you mean? Do you get errors as above or is it a generell reflection?
Can you not in terminal give commands:

$ sudo apt update  
$ sudo apt upgrade

Unfortunately when trying to install apps from System > Install Applications I keep getting errors for

- Firefox
- Chromium
- Libreoffice

any possible solutions?

Have you installed other applications ok and only those gives errors?
Have you checked that your sources list is ok (command "inxi -r") lists them.

What is the output of command (in terminal):

$ sudo apt policy firefox-esr

and the policy for chromium and libreoffice?
What if you try to install from terminal:

$ sudo apt install firefox-esr chromium libreoffic

Not installed any apps, this was a first install from live CD

Have you checked that your sources list is ok (command "inxi -r") lists them.
Output is

Repos:
Active apt repos in: etc/apt/sources.list
1: deb [url]https://deb.debian.org/debian-security[/url] buster/updates main contrib non-free

Active apt repos in: etc/apt/sources.list.d/bunsen.list
1: deb [url]https://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian[/url] lithium main

What if you try to install from terminal:
Again I get an error message similar to previous " The following packages have unmet dependencies"
then a list alll saying " but it is not going to be installed"

You are missing respositorys for debian! You have only debian-security and Bunsenlabs.

From Sources - Lithium sources.list and backports details

/etc/apt/sources.list should contain:

deb https://deb.debian.org/debian buster main non-free contrib
# deb-src https://deb.debian.org/debian buster main non-free contrib

## Debian security updates
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates main contrib non-free

# buster-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates main contrib non-free
# deb-src https://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates main contrib non-free

Add the debian repos, run "apt update" and "apt upgrade", then you can install what you want.
If you had allowed skript "bl-welcome" to run, you should have gotten info about missing repos.

^ What worked, correcting you sources? We shouldn't mark this fixed or resolved until we know what you did.
