Wow... that was helpful Doug.

Melbourne, give this a try, open a terminal and:

$ sudo apt-get install -f
$ sudo dpkg --configure-a
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade

Note: you may have to do this several times to get things cleaned up.
Afterwards, report back before you reboot or logout.
