Asked by Rohit Gupta on 2009-02-16

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.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  samba: Depends: samba-common (= 2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3) but 2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3.3 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

It seems that the list of available packages to install on your system is not properly synchronised.
You should try the following commands to synchronise it again and then try to install samba again:
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update

Then, try:
sudo apt-get install samba

If you get into trouble again, try this list of commands:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

The try again:
sudo apt-get install samba

And then if after all this it is still not working ;-) you have really bad luck, but you could always execute the following command, and we could go on helping you:
aptitude why samba

Can you help with this problem?
