Here's what I'm doing to try & fix the brokern packages and here's the error messages that I'm receiving. What else can I do or run to get this 12.04 LTS to update and to also be able to use the software manager as well as Synaptic? ten because the error message indicates its a followup error from a previous failure.

     No apport report written because the error message indicates its a followup error from a previous failure.

I'm not exactly sure if this will help you, but why not try removing the package that is broken?

sudo apt-get remove ubuntu-sso-client-gtk sudo apt-get purge ubuntu-sso-client-gtk

or does that not work?
