http://askubuntu.com – Whenever i try to install software from software centre, it says package dependencies cannot be resolved. I have tried restarting, sudo apt-get update/upgrade/clean. I am very new to ubuntu, and I need to install java. I also tried restarting my computer. Should i just reinstall ubuntu? (HowTos)
