I have a Dell Optiplex 755 Core 2 Duo that I made a fresh install of 12.04. There is no Winows OS on the machine. It has been running mostly fine for over a week. I do keep getting system crashes due to an xserver-xorg-intel conflict, but at least I know the source of that. Recently, running upgrade && update I keep getting a conflict, seemingly with just one update, the most recent
linux-libc-dev. Here's what I get:

I have searched AskUbuntu, have found similar questions and have tried the accepted answers where I thought they may have been of use. At this point, I am stalled.
