    trouble upgrading Ubuntu

    Hi, I'm having trouble with dependencies. When I try and update Ubuntu (I'm on 11.10), I get the following error message:

    Check if you are using third party repositories. If so disable them, since they are a common source of problems.
    Furthermore run the following command in a Terminal: apt-get install -f

    With detail:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    firefox: Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1) but 1:4.6.1-9ubuntu3 is installed
    When I run
    sudo apt-get install -f
    I get:

    Reading package lists... Done
