I have no experience with mini sudokus, but I'm assuming the rules are the same as the regular 9x9, except this is a 6x6.

I copied your numbers onto a grid and filled in each empty cell with the possible candidates. There is indeed a triple, but I don't know if you want to know where it is or just confirmation that there is one.

Hint: the triple is in a column, not a row.

Take a look at where 4 must fit in C3 and C4. R2C6 is not 4 and the puzzle is solved.
