    Question Error: BrokenCount > 0

    Hi guys, Ubuntu software center says: "Items cannot be installed or removed until the package catalog is repaired. Do you want to repair it now?" But when I click repair, it gives another error: "Package operation failed" By clicking on a stop-board icon on the top of my screen I found out the error message is: "Error: BrokenCount > 0" I tried apt-get -f install but it says "E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)" I'm sure you guys need more to go on, so just ask me if you need more information Thanks, Suzan

    Bitte schliesse das Softwarecenter, während du apt-get -f install ausführst. Auch ein Neustart könnte Hilfe bringen.

    Yeah, I just happen to understand that, but next time please just reply in english, since it's the most common language, and not everyone understands German, kay? Thanks anyway :3

    Re: Error: BrokenCount > 0

    Okay, so I installed the "suggested package": glibc-doc with apt-get install.
    it worked out fine, and part of the error disappeared. Now I tried installing ttf-mscorefonts-installer with apt-get install, then this showed up in my terminal:
    screenshot ttf-mscorefonts-installer.jpg
    seems alright, but I can't click on okay, so I'm kinda stuck here. I now remember canceling this is what probably caused my problems in the first place.

    Any help on this would be very welcome!

    Thanks :3 No more errors, setting as solved

    EDIT: Okay I can't set it as solved. "Thread tools" only has the options: "Show printable version"; "Email this page"; and "Subscribe to this thread". wth? (I feel really stupid right now)

    Don't feel stupid, the forum upgrade is outstanding a plugin to allow marking threads as solved, however there is a "workaround"..
