What do you mean whichever package? Because from the output, everything installed correctly except the icaclient package. –  Alaa Ali Jun 29 '13 at 9:37

Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), and type the following:

  1. sudo apt-get clean
  2. sudo apt-get -f install
  3. sudo dpkg --configure -a

Check if whatever you were installing (I'm guessing the Citrix client) is installed successfully. If not, try the following:

  1. sudo apt-get update
  2. sudo apt-get upgrade
  3. sudo apt-get --reinstall install icaclient

you can try sudo apt-get remove icaclient if you still are trying to install the icaclient then take a look at this: http://crazymadeagle.blogspot.com/2013/07/howto-install-citrix-client-on-ubuntu.html

Which describes the issue you had and also how he solved it and how he installed icaclient.
