    ubuntu 12.04lts virtualbox installation crash

    I had a major crash on my ubuntu 12.04.lts computer system.
    I had to push the restart button in order to get the computer to run again.


    Info: I installed virtualbox latest edition and the extension pack.
    It succeeded, but when I tried to import virtual machines into virtualbox,
    from a usb hard drive, the system froze.
    I managed to shut down the computer, and later to uninstall virtualbox using synaptic package manager.
    And the computer seemed to be ok again.
    Now I downloaded virtualbox and extension pack a second time, and tried to install. This time I couldn't install virtualbox. The hard drive began to
    squeak, and installation process stuck. I tried to cancel installation but no success. The computer froze, and I had to push the restart button.
    Now there is a red warning icon at the top panel (running gnome), and I get this message:
    an error occurred please run package manager from the right click menu or apt-get in a terminal to see what is wrong. The error message was “unknown error:<type'exeptions. Systemerror'>'(E:The package virtualbox-4.1 needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.). This usually means that your installed package have unmet dependencies.
    End of message.
    Now I can't open “update” and
    synaptic package manager” and
    terminal”. About terminal, I can open it but it says The package virtualbox-4.1 needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
    Q: How can I solve the virtualbox problem. I have made backup, so it doesn't matter some data may disappear.
    Thank you.
