    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    
    Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
    the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
    that package should be filed.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:
    
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      alien: Depends: debhelper (>= 3) but it is not going to be installed
      dpkg: Breaks: dpkg-dev (< 1.14.0) but 1.13.11ubuntu7 is to be installed
    E: Broken packages
    here is my /etc/apt/sources.list file

    Code:
    # Automatically generated sources.list
    # http://www.ubuntu-nl.org/source-o-matic/
    #
    # If you get GPG errors with this sources.list, locate the GPG key in
    # this file and run these commands (where KEY is replaced with that key)
    #
    # gpg --keyserver hkp://subkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys KEY
    # gpg --export --armor KEY | sudo apt-key add -

    You have Gutsy but your sources.list file has sources for Dapper.
    Generate a new sources.list file from here. Save file on Desktop and assign new_source name to it. Open Terminal and execute this
    Code:
    cd /etc/apt
    sudo mv sources.list sources.bak
    sudo mv ~/Desktop/new_source sources.list
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
