Might be useful to include the checkinstall input, although it's prompts are very descriptive.

I'm confused. Can anyone help me to check whether I have correctly installed ImageMagick or not?

@avideyes Hi, I think this might help you.
After installing if you want to check whether you have successfully installed an configured ImageMagick you could run
$ convert -version - Will give the version information about the ImageMagick package
$ convert or $ convert -h or $ convert -help will show the information about how to use ImageMagick or basically the help information.

And if you need more information about how to perform ImageMagick functions using the terminal, you could read this page from ImageMagick website.

You should be able to install ImageMagick directly from Ubuntu software sources:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install imagemagick

I had a similar problem and tried sudo apt install and sudo apt update, ...apt upgrade, ...apt-get partitial... purge... autoreinstall etc. etc.
but i didn't recognized that apt-get and aptitude are different ways to get packages.

At the end that was my solution:
sudo aptitude reinstall <package/app/missing deb>
an other version i found is following (but I don't tried because that worked fine):
sudo aptitude reinstall -f <package/app/missing deb pkg>

{In my case it was sudo aptitude reinstall libmagick++-6.q16-7:amd64 just to make it clear}

I hope it helps someone like it helped me
