    Error: BrokenCount > 0

    I keep running into 'Error: BrokenCount > 0', which started appearing after an update and a few program installs.

    This is the error in more detail:
    Code:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:

    which ubuntu are you using ?
    is it a genuine install ?
    where come from the extra installed apps ?

    Please post the result of that command into a terminal:

    cat /etc/apt/sources.list

    Also apt-get update works fine but it doesn't do anything to fix the problem.

    I tried downloading the files separate from the Ubuntu packages, but it wouldn't let me install it.

    Tried also to do apt-get clean and autoclean, and that didn't do anything either.

    Hi

    Let's have a look at the ppa's you have installed on your system as well as tha main sources.list file.

    Open a terminal and type

    Code:
    grep -H -v ^# /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*
    This command is case sensitive so requires a capital H. Please post back the results.

    This is an upgrade from Natty ?

    Kind regards

    Re: Error: BrokenCount > 0

    See if clearing APT's cache before attempting to fix broken packages helps:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    sudo apt-get install -f
    Check if that fixes it. If it doesn't, you can try a bit more drastically clearing out old stuff and updating, using the following commands:

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