Can't install via adept/apt-get, weird dependency error...


Hi guys...I'm really sorry, but...i have no clue on what to google about, or search for....

So, i have to, although i never do this, write on the forum here for help.

I can't install anything on my machine. Specs. are :

Ubuntu Breezy 5.10 w/KDE 3.5.1
Pentium 4 3 Ghz.
60 gb HD
GeforceFX 5200 GO
Onboard soundcard.

Here goes, everything i try to install with adept/apt-get gives me the same dependency error :

Emacs21 is not setup, emacsen is not installed and the package emacs21 which offers emacsen is not set up yet.
(Sorry for my poor english)

Here's the output of apt-get when i try to install emacs21, since it's asking for it : (It's in norwegian, please tell me if i need to translate it )

Code:
xxx@xxxx:~$Sudo apt-get install emacs21
Leser pakkelister ... Ferdig
Skaper oversikt over avhengighetsforhold ... Ferdig
emacs21 er allerede nyeste versjon.
0 oppgraderte, 0 nylig installerte, 0 å fjerne og 0 ikke oppgradert.
4 pakker ikke fullt installert eller fjernet.
Må hente 0B med arkiver.
Etter utpakking vil 0B ekstra diskplass bli brukt.

Thanks in advance

Edit :
Fixed it, this is for all of you with the same error and don't know what to do :
Reinstall the package named "emacs21"
Which...was really an easy fix......

Cheers
