Open a terminal and execute the following commands with order (one by one). Copy-paste from here.

    wget "" -O ~/fixpackage
    sudo chmod +x fixpackage
    sudo ./fixpackage


If you cannot fix basic things like that then I don't advise you use prerelease.

Raring is also only nine months supported so will be EOL before Quantal and a lot before Precise

Can you help with this problem?
