This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Open Terminal, copy and paste command, press enter, and if prompted enter your password.

sudo apt-get install -f

As for Google Chrome not installing, this is a problem that Google are aware of.
