I was surfing the internet and updating my Ubuntu simultaneously. But Ubuntu SUDDENLY stopped give me any response.(mouse wasn't able to move, nothing except my notebook's cooler noise).

This situation was continuing very long time so I decided that I have no choice except to switch computer off and then switch it on.

Now I have problems with updating system(it don't want to update!) installing programs and, the most terrible thing, switching my desktop image.

(it died in 13:55 of 14th May) enter image description here

I'm afraid of using liveCD, because I had used WUBI to install it on windows. (i suppose liveCD can kill everything what I have. If it won't what kind of distributive should I use?)

Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) 64-bit Kernel: Linux 3.2.0-40-generic GNOME 3.4.2 Could you help me in this trouble please?

UPDATE1: I've tried (re)install libc6, but always have this

E: Internal Error, No file name for libc6

dpkg also have troubles with next packages:

libc6 libc6-dev libc-dev-bin libc6-i386 libc6-dev-i386

When I tried remove libc6 he told me that there are incorrect dependences. and pkgProblemResolver::Resolve have generated hurmed packages, possibly because of "held packages". (i can't just copypaste this because of different language)

Try sudo apt-get install libc6 and see if that allows Update Manager to function. –  douggro May 23 '13 at 14:05
What about sudo apt-get install -f to fix broken dependencies. Also review this to see if it applies: askubuntu.com/a/296339/14916 –  bcbc May 23 '13 at 15:15
SOLVED! 1) dpkg -i .../name.pkg 2) update (and a lot of other tries, so i am not sure) –  George Dunaev May 23 '13 at 19:09
