If you're hoping for help, you should be including the exact output,
absolutely verbatim, in your post.  I hope Easyubuntu makes it possible
for you to copy and paste that information:  Some "GUI"
package-management front-ends interfere with that task, making it
difficult for users to provide meaningful diagnostic information to
others trying to help them.  That information is essential.

You have unfortunately given way WAY insufficient data for people
wanting to help you.  It's in your interest to help people help you!  ;->
