Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  dconf-service : Depends: default-dbus-session-bus or
  libsoup2.4-1 : Depends: glib-networking (>= 2.32.0) but it is not 
going to be installed
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be 
caused by held packages.
