Have you tried opening Synaptic Package Manager, click on "Edit" in the menu bar, and click on "Fix broken packages"?

Nick's suggestion is best, though please keep in mind that this is a Preview release, there will be some bugs in it. So far, I haven't bothered with 17.2, normally I do, yet have had other things keeping my busy. I'll likely upgrade to 17.2 when it's offered through the updating system & let others work the bugs out. Honestly, I don't feel there'll be many huge changes, if I did, would be testing 17.2. 

 

Though I'll likely test the Mint 18 RC when it ships, it's a more major release & will be about 3 months after Ubuntu 16.04 LTS in April 2016. It'll be after that release before work on Mint 18 takes place, probably a year away. 

 

Don't feel alone, Windows 10 is to be shipped in less than a month & still has bugs.  :hysterical:

 

I believe you'll be OK, when testing Preview releases, it's best to place these on another HDD to run on, if there's no extra bay, these normally are easily swappable on most computers. Many notebook users can use their optical drive bay, along with an adapter specially for 2.5" HDD/SSD's, to add an extra, and get a $5 USB cable for the few times the optical drive is needed. The caveat is that there will be less battery life, unless both are SSD's, I have two setup this way.

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
