    Angry Just updated 12.04 with recommended updates... massive meltdown

    So I had a perfectly good running system this morning, now that I installed the recommended updates from Update Manager, my ATI driver is completely messed up (won't let me purge it, or reinstall it). Also, it says my package manager is broken

    Any ideas? anyone else run into this after today’s update?

    So I figured out so far that it's got something to do with a dependancy issue with my ATI Radeon graphics driver.

    This is what I get when I try opening the software centre:

    Then when I click repair, it tries for a bit and gives me this (full text below pic):
