Like the second message said be sure that you have all other installing programs (synaptic,update manager,apt-get from terminal) closed.Under synaptic>repositories> check all under ubuntu software (except the source & CD rom) and under updates check first two.Reload.In terminal

sudo apt-get install --reinstall ttf-mscorefonts-installer
