Infinite 'pending installation'

I downloaded isync_3.3.8.48942-bionic_amd64.deb file and I 'install linux application' and stays on 'pending installation' for........,...ever.
Thanks in advance

Please link the source of this download - main page listing this, not direct download link.

The only concrete dependency is perl 5.14, did you install that prior to your attempt to install?


Retry from the terminal please.... open terminal in that directory (right click -> open in terminal). Type:

sudo dpkg -i isync_3.3.8.48942-bionic_amd64.deb

[You can hit tab to finish filling out the name after isync]

Select the output in the terminal from where it hangs up to the beginning command (dpkg)[press ctrl + shift + c to copy] , and paste it here. Press ctrl +c in terminal to cancel that progress.

disregard guys sorry;apparently you need internet connection even though one has downloaded the .deb file
