How do I resolve unmet dependencies?

After I installed Ubuntu 12.04, I am not able to get Skype, Picasa , Adobe flash player and such similar applications. When I try to install these, I get this message:

Failed to satisfy all dependencies,The following packages have unmet dependencies

 depends: libgcc1(>=1:4.1.1) but 1:4.6..3-1 is installed. 
 Software index is broken, pl use the package manager"synaptic" or run 
sudo apt_get install -f in a terminal to fix the issue first. 

As I am not a computer expert, I am not able to follow and take action. Hence kindly let me know how to get over the problem by giving me the way I should go step by step.
