Error when trying to uninstall/reinstall git


I have tried to reinstall git after having errors with pulling an update from github. I’ve found that there is an error with libc-bin. Can anyone give me pointers here? Thanks in advance, the whole output from install git command is below.

>Solution :

First, start by removing the post-installation files of libc-bin because maybe they are corrupted.

sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/libc-bin* ~/

After that reinstall libc-bin and git:

sudo apt update && sudo apt --fix-broken install && sudo apt install libc-bin && sudo apt install git

Feel free to ask me anything in the comments.
