-f is the fix broken flag. Have you done these yet?

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

For a GUI version, try

apt-get install synaptic

I thought the instructions were on the download page where you got your rpms.

To change to the root account, open an x terminal and use these commands from your user account. Note the change in the prompt.
Code:
[fancy@tinwhistle fancy]$ su -
Password: 
[root@tinwhistle root]# apt-get update
Let it read the updates
Code:
[root@tinwhistle root]# apt-get dist upgrade
Answer yes to the questions and update your system.
Code:
[root@tinwhistle root]# apt-get install synaptic
Install a pointy-clicky gui front end.

You can now probably install stuff you couldn't before.

You should have a menu item for synaptic if you are using gnome. If not, run synaptic from the run button in the menu or use an x terminal.
