- I have tried running
sudo dpkg --configure -aand
sudo apt-get install -fwith no result.
- I am running Kubuntu 11.10 (the updater is far too unreliable to ever be trusted with performing a version upgrade)
- The rest of LibreOffice seems to work fine (apart from an annoying bug where tooltips are shown as black text on black background...)
I have need to use LibreOffice Base to complete a mail merge document. However, I noticed it's not installed. When I go to install it however...

I'm bemused as to which packages it seems to think I have held. As far as I'm aware, Kubuntu doesn't give you the option to hold packages... So, how do I get out of this dependency hell?
