I am looking for an application that I can select different types of instruments and select notes to play, and then make different instruments play at the same time or specified time in the track, thus composing a complete music. I am not looking for connecting instruments to computer and recording them, but I am looking for something that can compose music without using actual instruments.
You could try TuxGuitar. I’m using it mostly for playing tabs but it allows for simple compositions with midi playback as well and there are a lot of instruments to chose from. It’s very similar to GuitarPro but totally free to use and a bit less friendly and lacks a ton of features from GuitarPro but still I think it’s worth a shot. It’s available from the packman repo.

Strange, I’ve installed lmms several times before on different machines.
But when I tried it today I got the same error as you.
I did solution 2 and so far so good, so I recommend you try solution 2.
When looking at the lmms page on packam (here) it says that it changed two days ago.
So probably something gone wrong making the package?
hint: do not use 1-Click installs if you are not willing to disable
all but the basic four repos after every use of a 1-Click…

disable some repos…

I feel annoyed that I can’t put my wide range of languages on stupid
Facebook. For example, I speak Sarcasm, fluently spoken and written,
and Various Forms of Geek…
Lots of the repos got installed while using web-search installs and 1-click install. I thought keeping them active would help with finding more packages easily. If that’s a drawback, I will disable them. Thanks.
DenverD pointed you in the right direction: you repo-list is pretty much a mess. You should tidy that and the respective packages soon (btw: one shoudn’t use the Videolan-repo at all, esp. when running a system for audio editing or the like).
Some of my favourite DAW applications:
• Hydrogen [drum sequencer]
• Rosegarden [the already mentioned hypersequencer]
• Renoise [a cool tracker - commercial software but is also offered as a free version with only few features missing]
• MuseScore [wonderful scorewriter]
• Bristol [a collection of synthesizer emulators]
