Unhappy error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/cnijfilter-common_3.50-2ubuntu3_amd64.deb

I am running Ubuntu NN 11.04 on an AMD64x2 system, all updates current. I am trying to install a Canon Pixma ip1800 printer with no success after many hours of trying. I have 2GB RAM, an NVIDIA 256GB graphics card and 1TB HD. 11.04 runs great, recognizes my scanner (a separate Canon 670U), but no matter what, I cannot get the software to install correctly, although other Ubuntu Forums have posted instructions. Below is my Terminal output. Can you assist with specific instructions to use. I have tried removing and re-installing packages with Synaptic Package Manager and commands in terminal with no success. Please see following for terminal i/o:

can you post at least one of the sites that you read for instructions? It is hard to guess what you did wrong.
However, the following lines indicate a typo:
E: Unable to locate package 3.50-2ubuntu3
E: Couldn't find any package by regex '3.50-2ubuntu3'
My guess would be that you are actually supposed to type something like
sudo apt-get -f install cnijfilter-common-3.50-2ubuntu3
But as I said, it would be easier if you linked one of the sites where you got those instructions from.
