fails to install vmbuilder


hi,
i'm trying to install vmbuilder in my system in order to create kvm guests but i didn't succeded,
i run the following command as root:

apt-get install python-vm-builder

and i got the following output:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
cpp : Depends: cpp-4.6 (>= 4.6.3-1~) but it is not going to be installed
gir1.2-vte-2.90 : Depends: libvte-2.90-9 (>= 1:0.30.1-2ubuntu1) but it is not going to be installed
python-vm-builder : Depends: python-central (>= 0.6.11) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: debootstrap (>= 1.0.9) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: kpartx but it is not going to be installed
Depends: python-cheetah but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: python-libvirt but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: devscripts but it is not going to be installed
zeitgeist : Depends: zeitgeist-core but it is not going to be installed
zeitgeist-datahub : Depends: zeitgeist-core (>= 0.5.0~) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

I don't understand what is the problem, and any help will be highly appreciated...

You'd probably forgotten to run 'sudo apt-get update' ?

If you have a valid /etc/apt/sources.list, this should do :

1) sudo apt-get install -f
2) sudo apt-get update
3) sudo apt-get install python-vm-builder

Any questions ? The Ubuntu version must be specified ..
