I am new to linux. Recently I installed barry desktop a client for blackberry sync.And after reboot I found an error notification on the desktop panel with an error message saying

ERROR: BROKEN COUNT>0"[the error notification I get on my desktop][1] 

When I use the updater to update I get the following error message:

[updater error message][2]
"The package system is broken:
Check if you are using third party repositories. If so disable them, since they are a common source of problems.
Furthermore run the following command in a Terminal: apt-get install -f"

I am also not able to install anything from the software centre or from Appgrid either. I get the following error message on opening the software center:

[error message on opening software center][3]

"New software cannot be installed because there is a problem with the software currently installed. Do you want to repair this problem now?".
When I click "repair", the operation fails with another error message as follows:[package operation failed error message][4]

"PACKAGE OPERATION FAILED

SAME ERROR AS ABOVE WHEN I TRY TO INSTALL FROM APPGRID. I believe I started having this trouble since I installed BARRY DESKTOP a client for blackberry sync. Please kindly help me with this. Thankyou.

    Did you try sudo apt-get install -f as suggested in the error message ? Not working ? Any errors ? – Mark Kirby Dec 1 '15 at 10:13
  • @markkirby yea I tried. It didnt help. Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/barry-util_0.18.5-1_i386.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) – gokul6 Dec 1 '15 at 11:09

I had the same problem and this solution worked for me: http://www.ubuntu-es.org/node/184249#.V1K85kqLRNw

sudo su
mv  /var/lib/dpkg/status  /var/lib/dpkg/status-bad
cp /var/lib/dpkg/status-old  /var/lib/dpkg/status
mv /var/lib/dpkg/available  /var/lib/dpkg/available-bad
cp /var/lib/dpkg/available-old  /var/lib/dpkg/available
rm -rf /var/lib/dpkg/updates/*
rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*
mkdir /var/lib/apt/lists/partial
rm /var/cache/apt/*.bin
apt-get clean
apt-get autoremove
apt-get update
dpkg --configure -a
apt-get install -f

Hope it works also for you.
