the problem is in apt both apt-get and aptitude will
give errors until you run

dpkg --configure -a 

you will have the same problem with adept and synaptic
as they are just front ends for apt. easiest thing to
do is run the command in terminal and try again
(though i have had less trouble updating from the
commandline than from the GUI's)
