    “this command will fix the error & will install the chrome” I think it will install broken dependencies. How do you maintain the chrome installation when a new version from Google is available? Download and install it manually every time?

      Hi Tomas ,

      If the latest version of Google Chrome is in repository , then using apt-get update command we can update the chrome version to latest , otherwise we have to manually download chrome from Google site and install it.
