After an update and restart, I found that the network icon on the top is missing and so, I cannot connect to LAN, wifi, USB modem, nothing. Now, I am booting from a Live USB, then chrooted to my original Ubuntu partition. I tried to install wicd by

root@ubuntu:/# apt-get install wicd
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:
wicd : Depends: wicd-daemon (= 1.7.2.3-1ubuntu0.1) but 1.7.2.3-1 is to be installed
wicd-daemon : Depends: python-wicd (= 1.7.2.3-1) but 1.7.2.3-1ubuntu0.1 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

I tried

apt-get -f install

but still the problem remains.

How to fix this ? What am I doing wrong? I want to install wicd on my original Ubuntu partition. Help please.

You can try reinstalling the network-manager. To do it use the following commands:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall network-manager
sudo apt-get install --reinstall network-manager-gnome

To solve the problem of not able to install wicd, first install the dependencies.

sudo apt-get install wicd-daemon
sudo apt-get install python-wicd

Now, try installing wicd.
