I have recently install Ubuntu in my desktop. When I am trying to install new software from Software Center it's showing some missing package problem. what should I do? Can any one help me? This is the massage showing when I am installing any new software: "This error could be caused by required additional software packages which are missing or not installable. Furthermore there could be a conflict between software packages which are not allowed to be installed at the same time."
