Well, I had previously (months ago) tried installing Xubuntu on the computer, and the install didn't work. Now I recently used another Xubuntu CD to install Xubuntu again (one is an install CD and the other is a Live CD).
I think I may have used one CD to install Xubuntu, and now I've been trying to use the other CD to update etc.
Thanks for pointing that out, I'll try the other CD with all these commands. Thanks

Alright, I put my original install Xubuntu CD into the drive and ran
sudo aptitude update sudo apt-get install build-essential
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree... Done 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: build-essential: Depends: gcc (>= 4:4.1.1) but it is not installable Depends: g++ (>= 4:4.1.1) but it is not going to be installed Depends: make but it is not installable Depends: dpkg-dev (>= 1.13.5) but it is not going to be installed E: Broken packages
