    Unhappy always failed to install packages with all dependencies satisfied!!

    hi, i've recently noticed that no deb package that i try to install get installed. even some deb packages that i have installed before and am sure of its integrity.
    all goes well, all dependencies are satisfied, it asks for the root password, then in the terminal window it says "(Reading database..." then it stops and says "failed to install package..."..
    i think it started a couple of days ago since i upgraded to hardy.. it's really frustrating. what should i do?

    Check Software Sources to be sure all repositories are enabled.

    Did you check Software Sources? If the *deb file needs to pull dependencies from the repositories, but can't find any, it's going to complain.

    it didn't say that it needed other packages, it wasn't trying to download other dependencies..
    and here are my sources: (attached screenshot)

    please post your sources from the sources list
    you can find that by running the command:
    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    also try
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    and then
    Code:
     sudo apt-get install -f

    i forced to check for system-wide broken dependencies and it came back negative. none broken..
    i tried installing a deb using dpkg from the terminal and it totally worked!!!
    isn't the gui using dpkg as well? why is it failing then!!!

    I would imagine there is some problem with apt
    can you post the output of:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get -f install
    Code:
    sudo apt-get --fix-missing
    Code:
    sudo apt-get --fix-broken
