    Unable to update Ubuntu Server 12.04LTS

    Trying to do an update, the update manager tells me that the package system is broken and should try apt-get install -f

    Details:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:

    linux-server: Depends: linux-image-server (=3.2.0.37.44) but 3.2.0.38.46 installed
    Depends: linux-headers-server (=3.2.0.37.44) but (3.2.0.38.46 installed

    Running apt-get install -f

    Errors were encountered while processing:
    linux-server
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    Any clue?

    Try a dist-upgrade, see if that gets you anywhere. If not, please post the errors.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    It didn't work giving the same problem... Forcing the dist-upgrade (-f) worked, took a long time to finish, but afterwards, the problem is still is there:
