"Unable to download updates: The following packages have unmet dependencies:"

GUI frontends for package managers in general have a track record of constantly working and breaking depending on its mood.
Both on Pinephone/Pinetab, and on any kind of PC.

This is why we Linux users love the terminal so much, and it's one type of marriage which will never see a divorce.
Because while the GUI is forever instable, the command line just works.
So probably a better idea to get used to updating using the terminal in case you're not yet.
