After an update, I get a red warning icon in the system tray, warning about an error: broken count >0
Opening Update manager, I see that the broken package is
linux-headers-3.2.0-33-generic-pae (new install)
Specificaly I have my ubuntu on an AspireOne with 8gb internal storage.
apt-get clean as suggested in another question on this site, and tried reinstalling the package in Synaptic.
I have tried to reboot but to no avail.
I have also tried
apt-get install --fix-broken and I get the following:

I've tried all suggestions I could find:
sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get autoclean sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get -f install sudo apt-get install --fix-broken
Then I saw that on the error there was a mention about free space. So I did a df -h and the result was:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda1 7,0G 5,5G 1,1G 84% / udev 235M 4,0K 235M 1% /dev tmpfs 97M 816K 96M 1% /run none 5,0M 0 5,0M 0% /run/lock none 242M 352K 242M 1% /run/shm
I see that on my root folder I have 1.1Gb free. The broken package is
which only takes up 11.3Mb on my hard drive.
I'm soooo lost. I really hope there is something I'm missing here. I don't want to go about reformatting this bucket. It's really not worth the time. Any help for fixing this would be hot.
