Straight dump of error:

gyan@L-7874:~$ sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-desktop-full
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 python-catkin-tools : Depends: python-catkin-pkg (>= 0.2.9) but it is not going to be installed
 python-rosdep : Depends: python-catkin-pkg but it is not going to be installed
 python-rosdistro-modules : Depends: python-catkin-pkg-modules but it is not going to be installed
 ros-indigo-catkin : Depends: python-catkin-pkg (> 0.2.9) but it is not going to be installed
 ros-indigo-desktop-full : Depends: ros-indigo-desktop but it is not going to be installed
                           Depends: ros-indigo-perception but it is not going to be installed
                           Depends: ros-indigo-simulators but it is not going to be installed
                           Depends: ros-indigo-urdf-tutorial but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

I have tried most of the commonly known tricks given in the internet. Anyone who fa ed similar issue with regards to catkin package

Hi, I have solved this issue. Once you have meet the error , you can only reinstall system, then follow the installation tutorial on ros wiki,http://wiki.ros.org/indigo/Installation/Ubuntu. Here is the key operation: do

sudo apt-get upgrade

after

sudo apt-get update

So Luc, what you mean is I have to reinstall the whole ubuntu? I dont really get the "key operation" part that you are talking about, is it that during the ros installation I would have to run a upgrade after the update? Thanks in advance.

It is the most feasible way to reinstall the whole ubuntu. The key operation is to update the ubuntu to the latest. Therefore, you should do sudo apt-get update and then sudo apt-get upgrage once you resintall ubuntu. Sorry, English is not my native language,I hope I've explained clearly.
