I attempted to run
sudo apt-get update, but got the error
E: The method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/http could not be found. Following to this answer, I checked
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and found no https sources. I tried
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https and received an error about not being able to connect to the update server or repository. (I lost the exact error text when I rebooted the pi.)
At this point,
apt-get appeared rather broken, so in following the answer, I downloaded the
apt-transport-https.deb directly and (after verifying the sha256 checksum) installed via
dpkg -i. I had one dependency to update, so I also installed
libapt-pkg4.12 (confirming checksum, etc.), which then allowed
apt-transport-https to complete installation.
sudo apt-get update produced no output after the manual dpkg install. I tried a
sudo shutdown -r now and after logging in again, still no output.

What did I do wrong, and can it be fixed? I'm just looking to use
