I was trying to install adobe reader and it didn't finish installing. Then I decided that I dont need adobe reader and how do I have ubuntu think everything is fine and there are no unmet dependencies or have ubuntu get those dependencies? I need to resolve this error because my system is running out of memory because of apps and I cant install or uninstall packages. I have tried
sudo apt-get install -f and I get this:

Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
I tried all of the soloutions from How do I resolve unmet dependencies? that I could (all of the ones that use terminal only)
