"resolve generated breaks...held packages"

While trying to upgrade using the Debian Squeeze repositories, I ran into an error in Synaptic that I don't understand:
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
E: Unable to correct dependencies
I don't know what that means, but I can't fix it by selecting Edit-->Fix Broken Packages; it produced that error message. Until I fix the error, I can't download any software.
