I am having dependency problems, whenever I do an
apt-get install, I get this error message:
I already tried:
dpkg --configure -a
What should I do now?

http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ sid main is a repository for the Debian OS, not Ubuntu. You should not be using this repository. Here's what you can do:
sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.bk
/etc/apt/sources.list with your favorite editor, and delete everything, and repopulate it with the proper, default repositories. Here's how you'll get them:
sources.listfile and save it.
Run the following commands in order:
sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -f sudo dpkg -a --configure sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
You'll probably get some errors along the way.
apt-get install -f should try to fix most issues, but I suspect that it won't fix everything.
dpkg will try to further configure the packages, although
apt-get install -f should call it by default. The last command is to fully upgrade your system, including the linux kernel, which is what you're having problems with from the logs you posted. I suggest you, again, run these commands after everything is done:
sudo apt-get install -f sudo dpkg -a --configure
I had similar issue all of a sudden when I try to install via
What did the trick for me is as was suggested in the output of the error message:
apt-get install -f
I presume, one of my recent installations failed and left my system in an unmet dependencies state. Running the above installed a few libraries, post which I was able to install my new software.
