There's an issue with an Alpha/Beta Release of Ubuntu, what should I do?
I've been running 12.10 for about a week now with pretty minimal issues so far; the main problem I'm experiencing is that the nvidia drivers I have are refusing to upgrade. I'm currently using the experimental drivers, so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. Either way, I was hoping to see if anyone could make any sense of this output:

What would be the solution to this? I already tried an
apt-get clean along with a
apt-get -f upgrade after, and that didn't solve the problem.
