I want to download a packet from one of the Ubuntu repositories and when I enter apt-get install "thepacket" I get the following error: megajc-reloaded needs to be reinstalled, but no files can be found for it. I also tried to use Ubuntu software center and it tells me that the package catalog needs to be repaired. So I click on repair but it fails to repair it. Then I entered sudo dpkg --configure -a but it didn't fix the issue either. What can I do? Thanks.

UPDATE: I managed to solve the problem thanks to Ubuntu Software Center as I said before but this time it fixed it.

try removing the offending package and running "apt-get -f install" afterwards – Janus Troelsen May 22 '12 at 17:17
i.e. sudo apt-get remove megajc-reloaded && sudo apt-get -f install – Janus Troelsen May 22 '12 at 17:18

If you click on the Repair button in Ubuntu Software Center, the system may be able to repair this automatically.
