I am trying to install cinelerra,

I have followed the instructions in https://launchpad.net/~cinelerra-ppa/+archive/ppa

basically

open the terminal and

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cinelerra-ppa/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cinelerra

but after the last line, in the terminal appears this...

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation:

You have broken packages, try running apt-get with -f to fix broken packages:

sudo apt-get -f

Then update:

sudo apt-get update

Then install again.
