Cannot install Crossover because of dependencies

Dear All

I am going back to Linux so I installed Kubuntu 20.04.2 LTS-64. Then Virtualbox 64 (VB64) bit from within Discover. Next I installed Lazarus (lazarus-project_2.2.4-0_i386.deb), but the 32 bit version. (with help from this forum). Virtuabox was uninstalled as part of the Lazarus’ installation. I did not notice. I have Virtualbox no more. When I try to reinstall VB64 from Discover I get this message.
This action will also remove the following packages:
First Try - Undeterred, and while awaiting resolution from a Lazarus forum I pressed on with my journey back into Linux land. I decided to use Codeweavers again. While waiting for payday I downloaded the trial version. It has not gone smoothly. Not much has gone smoothly. I appear to be a a circle of unresolvable dependency problems. A bit like my personal life. See the output at the bottom. As you will see from the reproduced output marked First Try, where prompted I have tried to install a package mentioned. I have no idea what
"Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution)"
means, though I did try it.
Second Try – I keep installation notes and previous notes mentioned a dependency error and recommended I try to update apt and install python. This is inconclusive. See notes at the bottom marked Second Try

Any assistance welcomed

Output pasted here:

Stephanos, in your output, you typed only "sudo apt --fix-broken", but the correct command is:

sudo apt --fix-broken install

the command "install" is missing in the line. "install" is the command and is mandatory, "--fix-broken" is only saying to "install" to try to fix things.

Hope this helps!

Thank you

Corrected, resolved/installed

Issue solved
