    Package Dependencies error loop

    Hey all,

    Was trying to install something today and then got this error:

    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: The package ooobasis3.4-images needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
    When to check for dependencies, and got this:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq ooobasis3.4-images
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent removal of ooobasis3.4-images: openoffice.org3 depends on ooobasis3.4-images.
    dpkg: error processing ooobasis3.4-images (--remove): dependency problems - not removing
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     ooobasis3.4-images
    Tried to purge OO.org3 because I don't need it:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge openoffice.org3
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: The package ooobasis3.4-images needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
    And we're back to square one. When to package manager, and got this:
    Code:
    E: The package ooobasis3.4-images needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
    E: Internal error opening cache (1). Please report.
    Searched around a bit and tried different solutions like:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq openoffice.org3
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent removal of openoffice.org3:
     openoffice.org3-impress depends on openoffice.org3.
     openoffice.org3-writer depends on openoffice.org3.
     openoffice.org3-draw depends on openoffice.org3.
     openoffice.org3-en-us depends on openoffice.org3.
     openoffice.org3-base depends on openoffice.org3.
     openoffice.org3-math depends on openoffice.org3.
     openoffice.org3-calc depends on openoffice.org3.
    dpkg: error processing openoffice.org3 (--remove):
     dependency problems - not removing
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     openoffice.org3
    but obviously got errors.

    /any ideas?

    Welcome to the forums!

    OpenOffice is now LibreOffice, which is preinstalled in Ubuntu by default, so I'm not sure what is the problem exactly?

    ooobasis3.4-images is missing. I can't ignore it, and when I tried to purge ooo it requires that ooobasis3.4-images problem be fixed.

    I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 sorry I should have mentioned that before. So I had open office install on here.
