Thanks for the question.

It is better to submit those questions against ubuntu, or <package> in ubuntu, otherwise they might not be picked up by the right people.

The problem is not the update manager, but the installation of your package failed and update manager cannot work until the inconsistency is resolved.

I would try the following in a command line terminal (i.e. konsole) (the password is the same like your login password)

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -f install

I hope this will resolve the problem.

sudo apt-get update is reading the update list but I got the same message in the terminal after typing "sudo apt-get -f install"
On the menu line on the deskto the updatemannager is shoeing that there is updates, but i can't install them.

Must be a way to either get the cupswrapper reinstalled or deleted. the driver is from

I downloaded the debian driver, at first installed the lpr and then the cupswrapper as told on the dowload page.

now i can't install or delet it.......

Árant, this is the wrong place to be asking for this kind of support. You can make your requests against the "ubuntu" product (this is currently the ubuntu-website product) or, better yet, see for a list of places where you can get help.

This area is simply for people to report problems about the website.

Can you help with this problem?
