I'm trying successfully complete a apt-get -f install but it fails because it says it needs version of this package but is installed.

I found another post that explains how to downgrade a package, but when I try to downgrade this pkg, I get a message saying the lower package doesn't exist.

This is on 12.04 Server edition.

Did you already run sudo apt-get update? –  Eric Carvalho Dec 26 '12 at 13:00
Yes, I did that. It seems to work OK, well, at least no errors, but the '-f install' still fails –  Paul Dec 30 '12 at 6:21
