This question already has an answer here:
I have a problem with
When I try to update or upgrade Ubuntu, I receive an error telling me that I have dependency problems, and I can't go on. I've tried to solve the problem with
apt-get install -f,
aptitude install -f, and using Synaptic, but I couldn't solve it.
When I try to run Synaptic, it tells me that I have broken packages, but if I try to delete them, it tells me that it will remove a lot of essential packages like
hostname. I think that it would be the end of my Ubuntu if I proceed.
