linux-image-extra-3.13.0-49-generic_3.13.0-49.56 is current package
The Ubuntu Software Updater is set to check for updates daily. The last set of updates included
linux-image-extra-3.13.0-49-generic_3.13.0-49.81_i386.deb could not be installed, owing first to a tar unpack problem and second to unresolved dependencies.
Ubuntu Software Centre produced this output (in part):

After looking through apparently similar questions, I tried some of the suggested solutions:
$ sudo apt-get clean $ sudo apt-get autoremove $ sudo apt-get -f install $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get upgrade
I am somewhat hampered in pursuing further solutions because after the above attempts, connection to my wifi router was lost and I can't restore it. The cordless mouse also stopped working, and the display is too wide (behaving as though the aspect ratio is 16:9, instead of the 4:3 it actually is). The system preferences are correct for all these problems, so possibly some drivers have gone AWOL.
