I recently installed Pidgin and tried to install pidgin-facebookchat. Ubuntu software center now says that pidgin is corrupt so I press repair but nothing gets fixed.
sudo apt-get purge pidgin but I get this error:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: pidgin-data : Breaks: pidgin-facebookchat (< 1.69-2) but 1.69 is to be installed pidgin-libnotify : Depends: pidgin (< 1:3.0) but it is not going to be installed Depends: pidgin (>= 1:2.10) but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
sudo apt-get -f install results in this error

How can I uninstall Pidgin from my computer?, It is also blocking other applications from being installed.
