Turns out I can't install anything using aptitude and I also seem to be missing a few dependencies.

When I try to install a program:

mom@mom-Inspiron-1720:~$ sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 clamav-daemon : Depends: clamav-base (= 0.98.5+addedllvm-0ubuntu0.14.04.1) but it is not going to be installed
 clamav-freshclam : Depends: clamav-base (>= 0.98.5+addedllvm-0ubuntu0.14.04.1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
mom@mom-Inspiron-1720:~$

I'd start by removing clamav - sudo apt-get purge clamav* - then try again. It appears there's an error in the clamav setup at present. You could try re-installing it again after - I'd recommend purge over remove here as the error could be in config files which remove may leave behind.
