I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04, there was an interruption in the download, however the s/m seems to be working fine, just that each time I boot up I get the following message

The following packages requested additional data downloads after package installation, but the data could not be downloaded or could not be processed.

ttf-mscorefonts-installer

The download will be attempted again later, or you can try the download again now. Running this command requires an active Internet connection.`

And asks me to run the installer, and then asks for password. However the popup just disappears only to re-appear when I reboot .Any help would be appreciated

I had this same problem before. I think how I fixed it was just to reinstall ttf-mscorefonts-installer. From a terminal:

sudo apt-get remove --purge ttf-mscorefonts-installer
sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
