You need to install the codecs. I assume you mean you want to play them from your psp through your computer (if that is not correct then this won't help). All you need is ffmpeg and faac but you should install all the codecs so you can play dvd's or other types of video files also. Follow these steps.

If you have not already done so then enable the medibuntu repository. If you are using hardy the commands are as follows:


Open a terminal.
At the prompt, copy and paste the following:

sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
Then add the key and update - copy and paste the following in the terminal:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update
The easiest way to get the codecs is to install the Ubuntu Restricted Extras.
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras.


Once you are finished you want to be sure that the following are installed. You can check these in Synaptic (system>administration>synaptic
ffmpeg
faad
faac
libdvdcss2
libdvdnav
libdvdread3
w32 codecs

I believe these should be installed when you install the ubuntu restricted extras but if not go ahead and install using Synaptic.

This will help if you get stuck.

The message basically means you have a broken package somewhere. As overdrank said - run the command in the terminal - that should fix it.
$sudo dpkg --configure -a
