The dialog probably says to use apt-get install -f, to repair broken packages, so do this

sudo apt-get install -f

and provide your password. If this step fails, inform us

PS. Are you using Oneiric? I have the same problem with Oneiric and am guessing, that it is just a temporary state, since it is a beta.
