I cannot upgrade Debian sarge by apt-get upgrade


when I try to upgrad below messages appears

debian:~# apt-get upgrade
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libatk1.0-0: Depends: libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.10.0) but 2.6.4-1 is installed
libc6-dev: Depends: libc6 (= 2.3.2.ds1-22) but 2.3.6-15 is installed
locales: Depends: glibc-2.3.2.ds1-22
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.


I am new t Linux so can you please tell me in detailed included every steps

thanks

Those package version that are needed are in the testing/unstable repositories not sarge unless it is your intention to run such a system I would recommend removing/commenting out the lines for them in your /etc/apt/sources.list.

No what I mean if you intend to run Debian Sarge then there is no way you should be getting them packages installed with only it in your sources.list. Sarge (stable) changes very little except for security updates the packages remain the same for its entire lifetime as stable the odd upgrade may be needed for the security additions but not all the time. So what are you trying to run here?

I am also using debia sarge, and "apt-get install scim" works for me.

You may need to add a mirror of debain server.
open /etc/apt/soutces.list and add this line

Code:
deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib
deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ stable main
deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ stable main
or run apt-setup as root


then run "apt-get install scim" as root
