Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 gnome-shell : Depends: libgnome-keyring0 (>= 3.2.2-2~) but 3.2.0-0ubuntu1 is to be installed
               Depends: libtelepathy-glib0 (>= 0.15.6) but 0.15.5-1ubuntu1 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I tried a lot of stuffs to fix broken dependencies but it didn't work.
