Recently, Amarok has quit playing MP3 files for me. It prompts me with the
dialog that says "Amarok currently cannot currently play mp3 files", and
then fails to install the required packages (libxine1-ffmpeg).

Here's the result when I try to install it myself:

tycho at mittens:~$ sudo apt-get install libxine1-ffmpeg
[sudo] password for tycho:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... 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:
  libxine1-ffmpeg: Depends: libxine1-bin (= but is to be installed
E: Broken packages

This seems like a Kubuntu packaging error (this all worked fine a few days
ago and the only changes I've made are auto updates), although it's very
possible that I'm doing something wrong.

Suggestions? TIA!
