The other day I was trying out different desktop environments, like Pantheon, Gnome, etc.
But when I was trying to install Pantheon/Elementary Shell, it came up with an error. I ignored it thinking it was nothing important (because it was just about the themes). And a few days before that, I was testing out different themes with the window manager and icons, one of the themes happened to be the Elementary Icon pack. Now whenever I try to install something it tells me to type in
sudo apt-get -f install, and when I type it in, I get some errors. Here is the output:

In the notifications place (in unity the top bar, gnome the notification centre at the bottom of the screen) it has an error saying:
An error occurred. Please run Package Manager from the right-click menu or run apt-get in a terminal to see what is wrong. The Error message was: Error: BrokenCount > 0". This usually means that your installed packages must have unmet dependencies.
