I have a fresh Ubuntu 12.04 install. I have updated it without any problem, but when I tried to install the Fortran GNU compiler from Software Center I get the error Package dependencies cannot be resolved. What is the problem? I am working behind a proxy.

can you post the output of apt-get? – jasmines Jun 6 '12 at 7:41
Specifically, the output of running these commands in the Terminal: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gfortran – Eliah Kagan Jun 6 '12 at 7:57

In Software Centre, type 'gfortran' into search box.

This will find: GNU Fortran 95 compiler

I already have this installed, on Ubuntu 12.04.
