BREAK( INSTALL ) Repository Error in Feisty 7.04

Hi All,

As a Linux newbie that is trying desperatly to free myself from WinBlows...I have a limited understanding of how Linux works but getting better at it everyday from searching in support forums. I would go OSX from Apple but at the moment i have no $$$$ to get one.

I have a Dell D610 and installed Feisty Fawn on it w/out any problems at all. After racking my brain in order to get fully AVI - MP3 supported I thought I was fully operational.

Now I have a problem with the repositories....

I use Adept to manage my repos...however i keep getting a Break Install error when I want to install certain apps ?!

Amarok and Beryl are 2 apps that i am unable to upgrade/install from repos.

What is this error message and how do I resolve it ?!

Does it matter in which order the repos are at ?

I googled this error message but saw little or no info on how to fix it. Your help is highly appreciated !!!

To see what's really going wrong here, we'll need to get some console output. So go ahead and open it up. It's in KMenu -> System -> Konsole
(or just press Alt-F2 to open the "Run command" dialog and type in konsole)
in there do this (and post back the output)
sudo apt-get install amarok
you'll need to enter your password to do that, and don't worry if you don't see what you are typing in, that's normal.

It will probably end in a error, so make sure you copy the whole thing here.
Also, can you post the contents of the file? "/etc/apt/sources.list" here (it contains the list of sources you're using)
