Broken packages linux mint 16


HI, the problem I have is when I try to update Linux Mint 16 I get the following message ' you have 15 broken packages, use the broken package filter to locate them'
How do I locate and use the broken package filter, and what do I do once the packages are located?
Thanks in advance advice will be really appreciated.
