    Even though your explanation is unbelievable, I couldnt still get Packet Tracer 7.1.1 to work, and all packages are installed correctly, but the same message keeps appearing to me, so please if there is a way to uninstall packages and then, reinstall them, I would appreciate it, because I am a rookie in the world of Linux generally, but so far, it is fun, despite of its mind consumption due to case-sensitive issues lol. Please more advance lessons regarding packages and installation is needed.
    Thanks again for the time given to write a lesson for us…

    Best regards
