Try on the command line (xterm/gterm/etc):
sudo apt-get -f remove
That should try to fix any packages that have been left in an
inconsistent state (-f means "fix broken") removing them in the
process (if possible). If that completes you should be able to use
Synaptic etc and add/remove any packages as normal.
If it fails, please post back with the exact error you get.
