Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Please always include at least some information about how this error produced and what were you doing. Since just pasting an error code may not be very helpful for those who wants to help. –  Anwar Shah Sep 21 '12 at 11:25

First enable all of the repositories , such as main, universe and also the updates and security-updates. Take a look at these questions

Try executing these commands:

sudo apt-get purge capiutils drdsl
sudo apt-get autoremove

and then

sudo apt-get -f install
sudo dpkg --configure --pending
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

I'am quoting an important line from there

If you are coming from Windows, it is important for you to know the role of a package manager. The package manager manages all installations, updates, upgrades and deinstallations. This way, you have a central place to manage your programs and their dependencies. If you stick to the official (default) repositories, you can be sure that every program you install has been tested, is virus-free (not that any Linux viruses are known, at the moment, to be in the wild), and is compatible with your system.

To resolve this problem, you can:

  1. Use synaptic and completely remove the broken packages then reinstall them.

  2. Try the command

    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    

    then try

    sudo apt-get install -f
