sudo apt-get -f install
# this will try to fix any conflicting installs
sudo dpkg --configure -a
# this will try to fix any dpkg problems that could be causing errors
You might have to issue these several times. Finally run
sudo aptitude dist-upgrade
until the system reports that there are no further updates needed
Also check that your /etc/apt/sources.list is complete and correct
