You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libc6 : Depends: libc-bin (= 2.12.1-0ubuntu6) but 2.12.1-0ubuntu7 is installed
libc6-dev : Depends: libc6 (= 2.12.1-0ubuntu7) but 2.12.1-0ubuntu6 is installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

Installed 10.10 an hour ago and had the same problem with libc6. Typed nothing but "apt-get install -f" in terminal and now it works without any error messages. Don't know much about the system, but is it important, that you have typed "apt-get -f install libc6 libc6-dev" instead of what I typed? (Sorry for my English)

I have the same problem with lib " libavdevice52 ".
I had tried "apt-get -f install":

404 Not Found [IP: 80]

and "Complete Removal" from Synaptic, but every time I have the same error:

E: Unable to correct missing packages

Synaptic every time show me "STOP" sign on panels.

What should I do? Maybe I can delete already installed broken files from libavdevice52 ?
Help, pls!

If a post is older than a year or so and hasn't had a new reply in that time, instead of replying to it, create a new thread. In the software world, a lot can change in a very short time, and doing things this way makes it more likely that you will find the best information. You may link to the original discussion in the new thread if you think it may be helpful.

If you are using 10.10, you might want to consider using a newer version of Ubuntu. 10.10 is past its "use by" date.
