I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 on windows 7.
I have tried to install vim editor through terminal using
sudo apt-get install vim
then I got the following error and couldn't install the package. Not only this I couldn't install anything from terminal or Ubuntu center. I am sure that my internet connection is good and I could browse the internet.
This is the error I got:-
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: vim : Depends: vim-common (= 2:7.3.429-2ubuntu2) but 2:7.3.429-2ubuntu2.1 is to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
