This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

What is the full error? Is it saying anything about third party repositories? Or something about linux headers? – jm_____ Dec 11 '13 at 13:01
try sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -f && sudo apt-get update – g_p Dec 11 '13 at 13:03

I think sudo apt-get -f install would be enough. Give it a try and report back.
