Can you post the exact message here, since my crystal ball is broken... Also, post what command you entered, and what software you are trying to install.

As a guess, you may need to run "sudo apt-get -f install" and see of that fixes the problem.

Open Synaptic Package Manager>Click 'Edit'>Click 'Fix Broken Packages'. That should be all you have to do. Synaptic should be able to fix the problem, if not post the error here.
