I have read a number of the posts here and they all state to run the following commands:
- Apt-get -f remove **
- apt-get update
- apt-get upgrade
- apt-get -f install **
I have seen these in various order etc, and none are resolving, my issue. No matter what I try I get:

I have tried several things over the past week and cannot get this to resolve, any assistance would be appreciated. I did notice the message:
Package mysql-server-5.5 is not configured yet.
and i have yet to get this configured so I am working on that aspect. Any other assistance will be very appreciated.
