View Full Version : [ubuntu] Broken package(s) - Ubuntu 12.04, 32-bit

August 17th, 2012, 10:06 PM
I'm trying to run software updater but get a message saying "The package system is broken

It goes on to elaborate...

"If you are using third party repositories then disable them, since they are a common source of problems.
Now run the following command in a terminal: apt-get install -f

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

libnux-2.0-0: Depends: libnux-2.0-common (= 2.12.0-0ubuntu1) but 2.14.0-0ubuntu1 is installed
Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1) but 1:4.6.3-1ubuntu5 is installed
Depends: libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 (>= 2.22.0) but 2.26.1-1 is installed
Depends: libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.31.8) but 2.32.3-0ubuntu1 is installed
Depends: libpcre3 (>= 8.10) but 8.12-4 is installed
Depends: libstdc++6 (>= 4.6) but 4.6.3-1ubuntu5 is installed"

However, when I run 'sudo apt-get install -f' I get...

The following extra packages will be installed:

Could anyone suggest how I can fix this?

Running 'sudo apt-get clean' followed by 'sudo apt-get install -f' seemed to resolve the problem
