Since you run 9.10 Karmic Koala and in order to avoid conflicts in package management, consider to clean up your sources.list.
Remove all lines including "dapper".
You can do this via CLI or via system administration -> software sources -> third party
Make sure not to run more than one package management app at the same time, lets say like
Synaptic + Software Center
Update Manager + apt-get.

Option to generate clean sources.list
