    Problem installing new kernel

    Hi

    I'm getting this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-source linux-headers-generic
    
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:
    
    
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     linux-headers-generic : Depends: linux-headers-3.8.0-12-generic but it is not installable
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
    Any ideas?
    I had some packages that were not upgrade, essentially linux-image\linux-headers and libreoffice.
    I've removed all the packages, but I can't install any of them:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libreoffice-base-core
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:
    
    
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     libreoffice-base-core : Depends: libreoffice-core (= 1:4.0.1-0ubuntu1) but it is not going to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
    What can I do to fix this?

    Thanks

    If they are not out yet, why are they already available to install (although they fail)?

    Install Synaptic... sudo apt-get install synaptic, and learn how to use it so all the updates are much easier to make

    Re: Problem installing new kernel

    I already have synaptic.
    today I started my laptop and run software update. It said that it couldnt install everything and asked if I wanted a partial upgrade. I said yes.
    then I get this errors..
    if I ran "apt-get dist-upgrade" it listed libre office and the new kernel, but it couldn't install them, giving the unmet depencies errors.
    my question is, if they are nit yet ready for upgrade, why does apr lists them?

    Re: Problem installing new kernel

    Not all the dependencies are uploaded yet that's why you get errors. The raring archive is live so sometimes you get partial upgrades and sometimes you get updates that don't install until their dependencies are available.
    Please mark completed threads as [SOLVED], which lets us find solutions faster!

    Turn off proposed in Raring and You will be OK, if You did not start dist-upgrade at some time in the near past...
