Currently Patch Management for Linux will resolve dependencies at the server level, but not at the client level.  This only allows a single level dependency to be achieved.  In environments that are out of compliance there may be multiple dependencies at the client level that need to be resolved before an Linux Update can be applied.

Options to accomplish this:
1- Create a report to list all required dependencies on the client
2- Modify the current behavior of the solution to resolve ALL dependencies (apply them as required) and then apply the current update.
