Most of my apt-get fails, and I am suggested by Ubuntu to run 'sudo apt-get -f install' which gives this:

dpkg: error processing ubuntu-standard (--configure):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of grub-pc:

Make sure you have "Recommended updates (precise-updates)" activated as software source:

then run

 sudo apt-get update
 sudo apt-get upgrade

No apport report written because MaxReports is reached already
means that apport is full of old error logs, so you have to clear it, so that Apport can start its error logging again.
To clear that, clear the following two paths: The crash files are gathered in: /var/crash In a session, if apport collects information, there are also apport files in: /tmp/apport.appname...

Now try again, this time Apport should atleast generate a goog error log for your problem, which you can possibly use to report/resolve the bug(or problem).
