I have no idea how to remedy this issue at all.  I tried running apt-get
clean, apt-get autoclean, rm -r /var/cache/apt/*, apt-get update, apt-get
upgrade, apt-get -f install and I still get this issue.

I was in #ubuntu asking about this issue and the one guy got terribly
frustrated with my inability to predict what to do here as someone who has
never dealt with this issue before I've given up on irc and am asking the
wise ones here.  Please don't fail me now :P
