I tried to update my machine through the Update Manager and found some errors.

First, before I get to the problem, I feel I should mention that my OS (10.04) is mounted on a portable HDD that boots using Unetbootin. (I take it with me around campus and "borrow" the universities hardware, it's much lighter than a laptop.)

When I update through the Update Manager I get the following:

dpkg: error processing linux-headers-generic (--configure):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
 linux-image-2.6.32-40-generic
 linux-image-2.6.32-41-generic
 linux-headers-2.6.32-33-generic
 linux-headers-2.6.32-40-generic
 linux-headers-2.6.32-37-generic
 linux-image-generic
 linux-image-2.6.32-33-generic
 linux-headers-2.6.32-41-generic
 linux-generic
 linux-image-2.6.32-37-generic
 linux-headers-generic

I'm not sure what to do. Any help would be awesome!

Could you try dpkg --configure -a in a terminal? What output do you get? –  qbi Apr 11 '12 at 9:08

apt-get -f install
