Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

At first, I got this message: "The disk drive for / is not ready yet or not present" I typed 'M' to run manual recovery in shell.

Next, I tried

chroot /
mount -n -o remount,defaults /dev/sda1 /
apt-get install -f

I got this off a post, but I have no clue what it means (I'm a total rookie at shell)! After the last command runs, it fails to correct dependencies and ends with these two lines:

E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
E: Unable to correct dependencies

What is going on?
