So I proudly updated my Linux distro for the first time and thereafter got a problem. I'm running Ubuntu Unity 2D (usually) 12.04 (since today) on a 64 bit computer.
Indeed, the first upgrade -- I made the upgrade through the Update Manager -- was okay (even if I was surprised by the amount of i386 packages that had to be installed).
Then, I re-enabled the repositories that had been disabled because of the upgrade and updated my system. I was told to perform a 'Partial Upgrade', that I did, but was once again surprised by the amount of i386 packages installed and also by the fact that LMMS (https://launchpad.net/lmms) was being removed; Wine, among others, was also being updated and that's probably the reason because LMMS depends on certain versions of Wine (I just know this, for the rest I'm a total noob). Anyway, this leaded me to the broken dependencies
libasound2-plugins:i386. Synaptic also constantly tries to install
libjack-jackd2-0:i386, but each time it gets an error.
I don't know if all this is Wine or LMMS related, but it maybe can help...
I was told to perform: '
sudo apt-get -f install' by Synaptic but it apparently failed:

Must I remove those broken packages via Synaptic? I would like to understand that problem as I can't install anything new from the Software Center. Thanks everyone!
