Nevermind, I fixed the issue. I deleted the contents of the libpcap0.8 folder located at /usr/share/doc/libpcap0.8 Then I ran the code apt-get -f install and the package installed correctly. I hope this helps other people having the same issue.

The deb file that is downloaded and installed when you run apt-get install is basically a build of the source code with most options already set. This includes the location where it would be installed, probably /usr/some_folder. This means you cannot change this location by using a deb file. The only way to do this is to get the source code, modify it and ...

That looks like it's only launching the Software Center, and maybe doing a strange search that doesn't get any results. I'd try running apt in a terminal, and search for flashplugin-installer (or maybe adobe-flashplugin, not sure if I'm supposed to have both or not in the default Ubuntu repos). This should find either/both if they're available: apt-cache ...

The 404 not found errors mean that these package sources are not available anymore, so you could delete or replace these minecraft ppas, but this does not prevent it from updating its indexes. But about the lock error 11 (which causes the update to fail), it says that some other process is currently in charge of these update files. Doing a reboot is ...

(1) Check if you have any package manager (like synoptics) opened while you attempt to update. If so try closing those and attempt apt-get again. (2) See if you have any other installation in progress (via apt) in other terminals. If above doesn't help. You can have a look at this thread, if it helps: Unable to lock the administration directory ...

Xubuntu 12.10 is no longer supported, it hit End-of-Life. The deprecated packages are taken down after 12 months, so it seems time has come. To make apt-get update work, you simply need to edit /etc/apt/sources.list and update all URLs from security.ubuntu.com and archive.ubuntu.com to point to old-releases.ubuntu.com, as per the following sed command: ...

You may have an issue with your LD_LIBRARY_PATH or something of that sort, possibly replacing the correct libexpat.so with some other one (i.e., something in /usr/local such as the library installed with MATLAB). This post addresses this problem: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2094005

Thought it would have been from actually "held" packages, but maybe not, or maybe not the only problem...

This may not solve the problem, but making a backup copy of ...
