outputs please.

Sounds like cruft.
The option from Shadow_7 for nuking from /var/lib/dpkg/status should enable you to install, but it's a 'hack' IMO. And may have side-effects as a result.
It's what I call the "new clear" option. I didn't name it.

Just sayin'
Habitual,

Code:
cat /etc/os-release

12.04 reached it's end of life in 2014-
https://www.ubuntu.com/info/release-end-of-life

Interested to see what cat /etc/os-release reveals.
Ztcoracat,

When announcing LTS versions, Ubuntu declared these are LifeTime Support, with no end-of-life. Yes 12.04 non-LTS is dead, which I'm not on, but support on an LTS is forever! Their words not mine!

I'm on 14.04 LTS and since no LTS is stable until 18 months after release can not go to 16.04 LTS until 15 Oct this year.

Cheers!

TBNK

Right-

I've been running Xubuntu 16.04 (Voyager Linux)for about 6 months now and it runs great.
I thought 16.04 is currently supported until 2018.

Can you post a link to having to wait till Oct 15th of this year?

Does apt-get -f install end silently? if not, "those packages".

Code:
sudo apt-get install wine1.6
Next round are some
Code:
dpkg --reconfigure
Who's ready?
or <wait_for_it>
Code:
aptitude
Did we look in /var/cache/apt/archives/ for wine.deb files?

Nuking the stanza in /var/lib/dpkg/status (or the whole enchilada) allows the OP to re-install only "new" packages?
More accurately, lose the ability to remove installed packages, IIRC.

Something like that.

Maybe rebuild your /etc/apt/sources.list?
http://termbin.com/sju6

When was the last time you ran
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
Do they run? Any messages?

Code:
sudo apt-get install -f
most of the time is able to correct most issues.
I usually opt to any thing affirmative on the response.

Did this start when you tried to install wine1.8?
