Can't install pakages after installation of Ubuntu DDE on Ubuntu

ht flag

I installed Ubuntu DDE on my laptop running Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS x86_64. But then I realized that I was unable to install some pakages on the machine. It seems to work on the Snap Store now but it didn't work there before. But I'm still unable to install pakages using Apt, resulting in some errors;

userdel: user 'deepin-anything-server' does not exist
Failed on delete user deepin-anything-server
dpkg: error processing package deepin-anything-server (--remove):

Btw [this](, is the way i installed it. Removing it as the guide says does not work for me.
it flag

You can temporarily add a dummy deepin-anything-server userid to your system to satisfy the post-removal script with:

 sudo adduser --shell=/bin/false --no-create-home --disabled-login deepin-anything-server

Then rerun your command.

grep deepin /etc/passwd

to check

It worked! But it showed a different [error]( Do you maybe know a way to fix that?

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
