Please provide more information, especially the command that you executed to get that error, as well as the full error message.

Furthermore please copy/paste the output of the following commands into this question document:

uname -a
lsb_release -crid
apt-cache policy
apt-cache policy gconf-service

How are you attempting to install the browser?

@Oscar: why did you send the output to my personal Email account?

Here is the output I received from Oscar:

Ubuntu 11.04 is end of life and not supported anymore in any way.

Please read this:

I suggest performing a backup of all your data. Then perform a clean install of Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS.

Then run this bash script in Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS to install Google Chrome:

if [ ${MACHINE_TYPE} == 'x86_64' ]; then
# install Google Chrome browser which includes newest version of Adobe Flash - other browsers do not
cd $HOME
wget --no-check-certificate https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i google-chrome*.deb
# fix the Google Chrome dependencies issue
sudo DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get --yes --force-yes -f install

else
# 32-bit stuff here
# install Google Chrome browser which has better support for Flash websites (Youtube, ...)
cd $HOME
wget --no-check-certificate https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i google-chrome*.deb
# fix the Google Chrome dependencies issue
sudo DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get --yes --force-yes -f install
