Could you post your /etc/apt/souces.list file here please. Maybe we can figure out where that version of ttf-lyx came from and how to correct it.

How would you like me to do that? is there a way of me doing it inside the Terminal? or do you want me to go into the sources file and copy and paste?

EDIT:Sorry for double post.

I'd do the copy and paste thing! (but only because I'm lazy that way )

just type;
Code:
gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
And it should open the file as read-only.

Ok, so it started to upgrade to Maverick, and then something failed leaving the Maverick repositories in your sources.list file. The Maverick repository only have the 1.6.7-1 version of ttf-lyx and the 2.0.0-1 version first appears in the Natty updates repository.

Now, at this point I'm not sure how best to proceed. You have three options;
1. Backup your data, download the latwst Ubuntu .iso and do a fresh install.
2. Try installing the ttf-lyx .deb from the Natty repo (then uninstall)
3. wait for someone to give you a better option

1. Would that require A disk?
2. how would I uninstall it? Sorry super newb.. >//<
3. I will try two and see where that goes.

Start by downloading the .deb from this page
http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty-upd...f-lyx/download
Then install it. you can do this by right clicking on it from nautilus and select 'open with gdebi'
If that works, try uninstalling it again.

Not at all. But it's starting to look like apt is completely crippled by the failed upgrade!

Ok, I've had a look at what's been tried from the beginning and is looks like there is one thing that hasn't been done! (although I thought it had ?)
try,
Code:
sudo apt-get -f install ttf-lyx-
if that works, it should remove the damaged package and get us at least halfway to normal again.

the same problem occured to me and for me just moving ttf-lyx to trash from nautilus didn't work, the solution that worked for me is as follows

1) I corrected the getdeb entry in sources.list to that of lucid entry
(deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu/ lucid-getdeb apps)

2) Then I gave this command :- celsius@ubuntu:/var/lib/dpkg/info$ sudo mv ttf-lyx.postrm ttf-lyx.postrm.bak
celsius@ubuntu:/var/lib/dpkg/info$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall ttf-lyx

3) I got this idea from here :-
