Sun Java Plugin problem with apt-get Unmet Dependencies

I'm running Kubuntu Dapper, and I reciently ran EasyUbuntu 3.021 to install Flash and Java. Now whenever I use apt-get to install new programs, it gives me this error and doesn't install anything:

You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  sun-java5-plugin: Depends: sun-java5-bin (= 1.5.0-06-1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

Could somebody shed some light on what is happening? I'm guessing the version of Java I'm running is outdated?? Any possible solutions? Thanks.

Did you try 'apt-get -f install', like it says?

Sorry, I'm an idiot. I must admit I just rushed through everything...hitting next and yes when it appears without reading anything. I re-ran the EasyUbuntu Java setup, and I didn't scroll down to the bottom where you have to check that you agree with the terms, and just hit next right away without reading that is says I've declined the terms and won't install Java. I feel kind of stupid after I realized I've been doing this over and over for the past 12 hours. So I ran it again, checking the I agree box, and it installed everything and life is peachy. Thanks for your help.
