  • Phew, it almost looks like you have a mixture of different package versions for different ubuntu versions installed. Is that a fresh ubuntu or did you edit on the sources manually?

  • im using ubuntu version 14.04 and didn't edit anything manually. I have installed some video player after that this problem begins. Jul 11 '17 at 9:18

You can install the package.

make sure the repo sources are up to date

sudo apt-get update

To Install the package:

sudo apt-get install packagename

Once the package determines that you have some missing dependencies, run the following command to fix broken or missing dependencies.

sudo apt-get install -f

Above command will only download the missing dependencies if you have already installed the package.
