    That usually means one or more of the packages selected for updating is broken. Did you run "sudo apt-get update" first to refresh the package cache before you tried updating the system?

    Try this
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean all
    sudo apt-get update
    Post exact error message here, if any.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
