    unable to correct problems, you have broken packages

    I am trying to install handbrake-gtk in 12.04 with gnome3 shell

    This is what I did:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk

    But I get:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    handbrake-gtk:i386 : Depends: libwebkitgtk-1.0-0:i386 but it is not going to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
    I have tried:
    sudo apt-get install -f
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    doesn't do anything

    synaptic shows 38418 packages listed, 1811 installed, 0 broken, 0 to install/upgrade, 0 to remove

    sudo apt-get update gives me:

    W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net precise Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY D6B6DB186A68F637
    I also tried:
    echo foreign-architecture i386 | sudo tee /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/multiarch

    then updating, and installing, but it didn't do anything.

    And I tried booting into safe mode and selecting fix packages (or something like that).

    I am not sure what else to try. That is all I could find when searching for it.

    Open the Update Manager >>settings >> authentication >> highlight the ppa for launchpad.net . >>click on import key file >> Other Software tab >> put check in front of both entries foe that ppa.

    Then run
    Code:
      sudo apt-get install -f

    Thanks, but I can't see the ppa for launchpad.net.

    I attached a screenshot of my authentication tab.

    looking in the other software tab, I see several ppa.launchpad.net entries.

    Google it and check on discussions so you will be able to see what the other with similar problem have done before you.

    Thanks. That was the first thing I did, but I have tried everything I could find other people used, and none of it worked mor me (see post #1 for the things I tried).

    Re: unable to correct problems, you have broken packages

    Out of curiosity, are you still getting that signing key error from the Stebbins PPA? If so, what happens if you purge it, update (do you get an error), and then add that PPA again, and try updating?

    I tried adding that PPA and updating, and go no signing key errors just now.

    I have the same problem on 12.04 x86_64. No signing errors, just package errors. Removing the source and signing key and re-adding didn't help.
