Error messages after system update Ubuntu 8.04

After I do a system update the following errors appear in the message box of update manager.

E: linux-image-2.6.24-17-generic: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
E: linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24-17-generic: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
E: linux-image-generic: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
E: linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24-17-generic: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
E: linux-restricted-modules-generic: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
E: linux-generic: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

I have looked in Synapic package manager and nothing is broken and no dependency problems are reported. Need help!

Are you using an NVIDIA card?

Usually, when I see anything related to "restricted packages" it is a driver, such as the NVIDIA restricted driver for Linux. The "restricted " means it is not open source. If your video card is not performing as it should (no open GL - test it with the Chromium game or any other open GL game)then you need the restricted driver. I think some other video card manufacturers use restricted drivers as well.
