Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gimp : Depends: libgimp2.0 (>= 2.10.18) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libgimp2.0 (= 0.4.22) but it is not going to be installed
It looks as if the problem may be that the package libopenexr23 has changed its name to libopenexr24 which is installed on my system. It is needed by libgegl which is needed by libgimp2.0. It appears that some dependencies may need to be fixed but they may not be under your control.
