Error when trying to install a few packages on ubuntu

0 votes

I've installed a few packages and got the following message

The package system is broken If you are using third party repositories then disable them, since they are a common source of problems. Now run the following command in a terminal: apt-get install -f

I tried executing apt-get install -f but it does nothing.
