Okay so my problem is, I tried to install Machinarium from a Humble Bundle. I downloaded the .deb and installed it using the Ubuntu Software Centre. Everything seemed to go fine until I got the alert that there were updates available, when I try to update I get an error scream saying "Failed to load package list" and the details read:

E:The Package Machinarium:i386 needs to be reinstalled, but can't find an archive for it.

I've tried every method I could find to reinstall or remove the game, and now I can't open the Software Centre ether, Please Help.

Sincerly, A very distressed Noob
