Just had a headache myself today with having to fix a broken kernel 4.14.36 and 4.14.37 which could not be removed due to symbolic link errors.

Referring to this Q&A: Remove broken PPA package with unknown option, but following my β€œcheat” method, edit the file /var/lib/dpkg/info/context.postrm and after the line:


insert the line

exit 0

Save the file and use:

sudo apt install -f

It should run without any errors now.
