This question already has an answer here:

When I run 'Language Support' in system config. It gives me below . After I run 'sudo apt-get update' and 'sudo apt-get install -f', the problem still exists.

I run 12.04 amd64 .


enter image description here

Edit later : Today when I run 'sudo apt-get install -f', it let me run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' first.

When I run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a', it gives me errors like the post.

I run

sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/updates/000*
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update

Now I can run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' , 'sudo apt-get install -f' and language support SUCCESSFULLY.

Do what it says, open terminal, type "sudo apt-get install -f" and ENTER. – Shaharil Ahmad May 19 '13 at 11:14

Go to Software & Updates > Updates and unselect proposed software for updates. Make a sudo apt-get update and see if the problem is solved.
