    I don’t know if other one have the same problesm..if I execute apt autoremove, then erase libqt5webkit5 and don’t works PT, avoid run apt autoremove

    Good explanation: follow them and it works ! On step 12, you can use this command instead : dpkg -i libssl1.0.0_1.0.2l-1~bpo8+1_amd64.deb.
    Thank you
