I've been trying to update standard packages on my Ubuntu box. There's literally nothing extra on this box except for VirtualBox for some Windows stuff I run. Here's one output:
$ sudo apt-get update [...] $ 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: libgail-3-0 : Depends: libgtk-3-0 (= 3.6.0-0ubuntu3.2) but 3.6.0-0ubuntu3.1 is installed libgtk-3-0 : Depends: libgtk-3-common (= 3.6.0-0ubuntu3.1) but 3.6.0-0ubuntu3.2 is installed libgtk-3-bin : Depends: libgtk-3-0 (>= 3.6.0-0ubuntu3.2) but 3.6.0-0ubuntu3.1 is installed
And another with the -f option:
$ sudo apt-get -f upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Correcting dependencies...

Here's the output for
apt-cache policy for all packages concerned: pastebin d3YcjPmJ. All seem to be from the official
quantal-updates release channel and an official mirror.
I've also tried
sudo apt-get -f install,
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade and
sudo apt-get clean && sudo rm -r /var/cache/apt/archives/, but all lead to the same error.
