Since I have upgraded to Oneiric I have some issues with the GVFS package. Because of the fact that nautilus is not able to handle FTP-Connections anymore, I tried to reinstall gvfs-backends as recommended in some posts. But apt-get isn't able to do so and I get the message:

Erneute Installation von gvfs-backends ist nicht möglich,
es kann nicht heruntergeladen werden.

Means something like: »New installation of gvfs-backends is not possible, can't be downloaded« Trying to install it with GDebi I get following message:enter image description here

Anybody knows how to fix this?

The error message suggest a network error or your package list is out of date.

First try

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

If that does not work, try another mirror close to your location.
