How do I resolve unmet dependencies?

Can someone please help me with these errors:

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:
libreoffice-base-core : Depends: ure but it is not going to be installed
libreoffice-calc : Depends: ure but it is not going to be installed
libreoffice-common : Depends: ure but it is not going to be installed
libreoffice-core : Depends: ure (>= 3.5.4~) but it is not going to be installed
libreoffice-draw : Depends: ure but it is not going to be installed
libreoffice-gnome : Depends: ure but it is not going to be installed
libreoffice-gtk : Depends: ure but it is not going to be installed
libreoffice-impress : Depends: ure but it is not going to be installed
libreoffice-math : Depends: ure but it is not going to be installed
libreoffice-writer : Depends: ure but it is not going to be installed
python-uno : Depends: ure but it is not going to be installed
synaptic : Depends: libept1.4.12 but it is not going to be installed
            Depends: libvte9 (>= 1:0.24.0) but it is not going to be installed
uno-libs3 : Depends: ure but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

I don't know how to fix this, sudo apt-get -f install is also not working and I can't update using both terminal and update manager.

What did you tried to install it broke dependencies?

to remove a package misconfigured or improperly installed can run the following

sudo aptitude purge $(dpkg -l|grep ^rc|awk '{ print $2 }')
