Thanx. I broke one of my rules for a fresh install.

I tried to install packages before installing revisions. This fixed my problem.

Smile fixing dependency problems

After an arguous bout with this problem I found what worked for me was simply to remove the problem and start over by reinstalling the package. Here is how I removed the package. sudo apt-get autoremove <package name> Then I simply reinstalled it.

hope this helps.

Easy, depending on the problem : )

Just remove the app and broken related packets... for in sequence to do a complete reinstall
In my case when I tried to add vim-gtk, the system complained about vim-common and vim-runtime

# Removing:
sudo apt-get remove --purge vim
sudo apt-get remove --purge vim-common
sudo apt-get remove --purge vim-runtime

# refresh repositories (optional)
sudo apt-get update

# reinstall
sudo apt-get install vim
