[Solved] Librewolf 103.0-1 "OBSOLETED" Error?

librewolf:

Package librewolf has no available version, but exists in the database.
This typically means that the package was mentioned in a dependency and never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the contents of sources.list

Already have tried without success:

sudo apt update
and several other sudo apt upgrade xyz, etc etc..

Stuck using another browser in the meantime. I want to be sure my repos are set up correct, I have not made any adjustments to sources.list since my recent re-installation.

Is the package simply being held back? If so, I can simply wait.

Sparky is the best, thanks.

Update package list and try again:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install librewolf
Post your output if still can't install it.

I had deleted the Firefox installation that comes pre-installed with SparkyLinux using the complete removal / purge method. It is possible that this is all the result of me having completely removing the Firefox that comes bundled with SparkyLinux? I ALSO downloaded Firefox-ESR, then uninstalled via complete removal as well. Currently using Brave.

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.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 librewolf : Depends: libnss3 (>= 2:3.80~) but 2:3.79-1 is to be installed
             Depends: libx11-xcb1 (>= 2:1.8.1) but 2:1.7.5-1 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

After posting this I will try to find/download the 2 missing dependencies, then attempt to install Librewolf. I will post the result.

#3
The system says I already have libnss3 & libX11-xcb installed.

Using Synaptic I reinstalled libx11-xcb then also reinstalled libnss3. Then tried to install Librewolf via Synaptic. Nevertheless this did not work, receiving the same "obsoleted error" I posted in post#1 above.

Is there a correct way to reinstall these 2 "missing" dependencies using the terminal that won't also nuke all of their numerous dependencies?

This is the output I still get from "sudo apt install librewolf":

I don't think I am missing these 2 dependencies, however.

To my knowledge I have these other possible FF dependencies installed:
libmujs1
libssh-4
libssl1.1

And also are installed on this system should be (as I just checked):
libc6
libgcc-s1
libgssapi-krb5-2
libssl3
zlib1g

The only other thing I can think of although it is far out there is my Bios may possibly be 6hrs ahead of my current time... I should probably check that now.

SparkyBookworm

I have the following versions of these two dependencies installed:
libnss3         version 2:3.79-1
libx11-xcb1 version 2:1.7.5-1

My time was off by several hours in Bios, I fixed that but it did not magically help with installing librewolf... I didn't think it would, but it was worth a try.

Removing Firefox does not make any problem.
The problem is with versions of libnss3 and libx11-xcb1, they are to low now, have to wait for updating them from Debian Sid repos soon.

Downgraded librewolf to 102, so you can install it, waiting for the new libs updating.

Thanks. That worked perfect. Librewolf v102 is now installed.
