I'm on 12.04 and an update last week seems to prevent me from using apt-get.
I'm a bit confused by this. Why is it trying to install a NEW version of gvfs-daemons when I apparently already have it installed? This prevents me from installing anything else. I've tried the dance of dpkg --configure -a and apt-get -f install and nothing lets me get past this particular package. I added a ppa this weekend but I have since removed it. Is there a way to figure out what package is demanding that gvfs-daemons be updated so that I can either deselect it or remove it? I'm not super familiar with all the dpkg/apt-get commands so thanks in advance for any help!
