After upgrading precise to quantal I am totally unable to run
apt-get upgrade or
apt-get -f install
sam@ubuntu-vm:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: software-center : Depends: ubuntu-sso-client-gtk but it is not installable Recommends: xz-lzma but it is not installable E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

sudo apt-get remove --purge software-center software-center-aptdaemon-plugins to no avail
sudo apt-get clean
sudo dpkg --configure -a sudo apt-get -f install
I tried rebooting and no go.
Any tricks to getting my
apt-get working again?
