It looks like it's trying to pull from quantal sources and thus can't find precise dependencies. Did you leave off the 'http:' from your commands? It should be

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu precise main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list

You should copy and paste from the tutorial rather than typing it in.

If that doesn't work, maybe try the answer to this question. Good luck!

It can be a missed 'http:' as tbh mentioned, but it also seems that the main repository is broken at the moment. I've got similar issue on freshly installed Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. Somehow apt-get tried to pull dependencies for i386.

Use one of the mirrors listed in the Wiki instead of main repository. It worked for me.

I have got the same problem with a fresh and clean 12.04 ubuntu. Does anyone knows something about when the main repository will be fixed? Since I also tried some of the mirrors which probably are synced after Boris fixed his problem. For me those mirrors give the same failing dependencies. I tried it 7 hours after your post and tried it again today.

try

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get -f install /* fixes the broken repositories */
