apt-get: dependency frustration


hey all,

apt-get keeps thinking that I have openoffice.org-java-common installed, and apt-get thinks that I need the dependency bsh in order to run Openoffice.

Here's the rub. I removed Openoffice. I've removed any reference I can find to Openoffice on my system. But still anytime I run apt-get I get the following warning.

Quote:
root@mythtv:~# apt-get check
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:
openoffice.org-java-common: Depends bsh (>= 2.0b4-1) but it is not installed
E:Unmet dependencies. try using -f.
I've tried:

apt-get -f install (repeatedly)
apt-get update (repeatedly)
apt-get remove openoffice.org
apt-get clean
apt-get anything that seemed remotely reasonable to try.

Manually removing all references Openoffice and any java file that seemed applicable.

Manually going into /var/cache/apt/archives and cleaning that of package listings.

How may I convince apt-get that I don't have OO and no need for dependency bsh?

How about an `apt-get --purge autoremove` ?
