[SOLVED] I am a new ubuntu user, just installed 12.04 LTS. Learned a lot from ubuntu users suggestions on the webs. I am a student and frequent user of MS office. However, I am unable to install MS Office as failing to get updates plus installing wine1.7.
sudo apt-get update shows something about unable to connect
archive.ubuntu.com and some files failed to download, they have been ignored or older ones have been used instead.
sudo apt-get install wine1.7 shows something about unmet dependencies and broken
[SOLVED] Answer: The problem was that my 64 bit system OS (ubuntu 12.04) was not updating completely because of the server. I went to the ubuntu software center>edit>software sources>download from> choose the best server> and I accepted the choice by ubuntu. That's it. Changing the mirror actually solved the problem. The sudo apt-get update happened successfully and I then followed the instructions available in forums to install wine and ms office 2007. The rest is good.
