Your Ubuntu package manager (apt) has gotten into a bad state, and can't do anything until you fix it. This can happen if the package install process is interrupted or encounters an error.

You can try apt-get install -f to see if apt can recover; otherwise you'll need to figure out which packages are stuck or broken and debug the issue.

This isn't really related to ROS; you'll probably be able to find better help elsewhere.
