I am getting the following error in the top menu bar:

An error occurred.
Please run the Package Manager from the right-click menu or apt-get in a terminal to see what is wrong.
The error message was:'Error:BrokenCount>0'.
This usually means that your installed packages have unmet dependencies.

How do I solve this problem?
