While installing dropbox from the repositories, my laptop ran out of power, and so the system went into a broken state. When I rebooted, I tried two methods to set it right. One was
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get install -f
Both were working fine, and they were downloading the dropbox package, but owing to my slow internet connection here, it's never getting completed, and is stuck at (at most) 47 %. A sample terminal-shot is
Setting up nautilus-dropbox (1.4.0-3)...

So if this doesn't get completed the package will remain broken for ever, and I won't be able to install more software. So if there any way, I can rollback and then download dropbox from the site instead?
I'm running Ubuntu 12.10.
When I run
dpkg -l | grep -v ^ii
