Not sure if it's related, but when I tried to update from Liv's (stable) PPA on a Mint Rebecca machine (based on Ubuntu 14.04), the update failed with a message that it was attempting to overwrite an icon file. Why that would be a problem I have no idea. After than, Synaptic wouldn't do anything until I fixed broken packages, and the "fix broken packages" menu item in Synaptic didn't seem to actually fix them. So I did a complete uninstall of LyX 2.1.4 (including common) and then a fresh install, and everything worked. On a second Rebecca machine, I went straight to a complete uninstall/fresh install with no problems. Paul
