Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: samba

I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04.1 today on my girlfriend's computer and after installing everything she needed I tried to share a folder in the network. When it asked to install samba, a error ocurred mentioning a broken package.
Trying to install the samba package via synaptic I saw what appears to be the error. 
The samba package I was trying to install was version 2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3. 
It has as dependency samba-common and samba-common-bin =2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3.
But I have samba-common and samba-common-bin already installed in version 2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3.1.
I if choose to downgrade samba-common and samba-common-bin to version 2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3, Synaptic says I need to uninstall smbclient, ubuntu-desktop and winbind (which I am not going to...)

So I cannot install samba only because the version of the samba package
is off by 1 digit. Updating the samba package or it's dependenies should
solve it.

Please don't let me down. Everybody at her house was impressed with
Ubuntu, until this bug showed up...
