I have updated 14.04 on my laptop multiple times without problems, but
last night after the downloading phase was completed I got an error
during the installation phase. Now I have no network connection wired or
wireless. I verified that the cable is good.
During installation a dialog popped up saying the package system was
broken. Said I should disable 3d party software and run apt-get install
-f. Did both. Here is the error portion of the apt-get command typed in
because of no networking.

Errors were encountered while processing:

Up in the top panel is an error symbol which has an error message saying.
The error message was: 'Error:BrokenCount > 0. This usually means that
your installed packages have unmet dependencies.
Anyone have an ideal of how to recover from this situation?
