Well here is the thing, I tried to install some updates a couple days ago and I guess something screwed up and synaptic crashed. Programs sometimes randomly close, really infuriating...
Anyways, I reopened it and it said I had 644 broken packages on my system. Going the usual course I pressed "Fix Broken Packages" and I keep getting the same error no matter what I try.

I've tried methods all of the sorts; I've opened the file manager in root and deleted offending files(It just re-downloads it and spits the same error back at me). I've deleted the whole contents of the cache/apt folder, even the terminal method.
Same error everytime... No matter what I try...
