Oh i see, well before you do anything, do:
Code:
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
So you know what you're doing, I am going to explain what that command does. It is two commands joined together with a '&&'.

The two commands by them selves are:
'apt-get update'
and
'apt-get upgrade'.

You could run those commands in that order separately and get the same result as the one command i've given you (assuming everything goes right).
apt-get is your package manager, it used to install programs. When you tell it to 'update'. It checks you /etc/apt/sources.list file. That file has all the locations/reps on where to get packages. apt-get update checks those locations to see what packages are there, so your computer knows what is available.
When you tell apt-get to upgrade, it actually downloads packages from that place, and installs/upgrades them. I hope that's clear. Either way, it's only optional reading, if you're interested in learning.

Try

Code:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
Let it finish

Then

Code:
sudo apt-get update
let it finish

then

Code:
sudo dpkg -l |grep synaptic
Then

Code:
sudo apt-get -s install synaptic
to do a simulation install of synaptic. To see what gets pulled in on a install.

The language barrier is probably gonna be a killer here.
Post output readout in code tags, That is in the toolbar of the advanced reply window. It's symbol is #.

Edit: Just saw Knightrons reply. I'll back out of here so as not to confuse the issue.
#zeeshanayub disregard my post and just listen to knightron so to avoid confusion.

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
synaptic : Depends: libept1.4.12 but it is not installable
Recommends: libgtk2-perl (>= 1:1.130) but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: rarian-compat but it is not installable

Try running "sudo apt-get --fix-missing install vlc" (without the quotes).

This is what i can't understand. Have you held any packages?

rokytnji don't hesitate to step in, i've little knowledge on Ubuntu. Those repos are foreign to me. I have to look them up to understand if they're added or not.

OK. That is good.

Language barrier kicks in. We do not know same error because you have not posted any error readouts for sudo apt-get update.

I am starting to wonder if you have a corrupted iso download and we are dealing with a bad md5sum. So did you

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM

before installing ubuntu.

My repos below for comparison (different distro but Ubuntu 14.04 just the same)

Code:
$ inxi -r

I mention again. It is easier for us to read your posts when you put terminal readouts in code tags like I mentioned in my previous post.

I need to check my sources.list, because it seems quite odd that the OP's shows old-release.

Right, the <URL> http://pk.archive.ubuntu.com
.. is not a valid <url>. At least not for now.

Please use "a fast link that always works",
e.g. the Swedish or Australian.

HOWTO change <url> : $ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
.. and the change the <url>'s to http://se.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu
