I agree not to pursue this further. We have the Xcfe desktop working and the effort involved in installing MATE is not justifiable at tis point. I already tried to upgrade the distribution and ran into issues. Hopefully, it did not break the machine.

I'm reluctant to give advice on this issue, because it is quite an old Ubuntu version. Is there a reason to continue to use 16.04? It's a LTS, but standard support ends this month.


Assuming your repos are set correctly, you may need apt-get dist-upgrade to allow it to install the dependencies. If you have mixed versions in your sources.list files, then this can horribly break things (partially upgrading your system to a newer release). If you share your sources.list files, I will try to check them, but please first answer why you need to use this old release.

Best regards,

You need to find repositories that contain those packages for your
distro. Did you manage to install the xenial-mate PPA?
