Angry Error: Add/Remove applications


Hi all, I am a newbee. When I ran this: Application > add/remove applications, I get this error.

This is a major failure of your software management system. Please check for broken packages with synaptic, check the file permissions and correctness of the file '/etc/apt/sources.list' and reload the software information with: 'sudo apt-get update' and 'sudo apt-get install -f'.

All these happened when I tried to install java unsuccessfully.
Trying to solve this problem, I ran the following

apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

This did not solve the problem and the error is exists.
Most appreciative to all for any help

Watson
