This is not normal. It may be easier for us to understand what is
going on if you open a terminal and run
sudo apt-get install the_package_name
replacing the_package_name with the name of the package you are trying
to install, and copy/paste the complete output here. To copy from the
terminal use Ctrl+Shift+C
