Would you care to clarify what you have done to try and resolve your issue?

The reason I have not offered any suggestions, is because dpkg database issues are not my forte, I don't have enough info to trouble shoot the problem, and far more knowledgeable individuals have already replied. Helping others is just as much about teaching the person, as it is about resolving the problem

If you want my suggestion, it would be to first find out what changed just before the error started.

See, I dont understand how you can say that about volunteers waiting 
around, they dont wait around. I have never seen one of you wait around 
since I first started using Ubuntu. I have spent the past 20 years 
running and volunterring on quite a few different forums, and Ive its 
without demanding money for what I do. It comes out of my own pocket. 
Attitude isnt one way either, its two ways, and you arent exactly 
briming with help and fortitude. ubuntu will never be mainstream, 
because of attitudes like this. You will always be complaining about how 
businessses dont trust you, because of attitudes like yours. The saying 
Ubuntu isnt free, its free to download, is a true saying. Its always the 
same, somebody is pushy, you say they have attitude. I have spent the 
past year or so since 9.04 trying to find otu and research, if you must 
know, and as somebody who is finding really hard to work out what 
terminolguy itself is used working out how to go about repairing things, 
is almost impossible. Ubuntu doesnt make things easy. Which is kind of 
strange really, comnsidering its title. So pelase domt throw that down 
my throat, you have no idea how much I havbe domne.
