(Is posting this enough, of should I add "Can you help me find what's the problem?" to make this a question?) – ripper234 Apr 5 '11 at 6:41
Output of apt-cache policy gmrun monodoc-base monodoc-http please. Also what version? Output of lsb_release -a? At first sight, this looks like it might be a bug. – Faheem Mitha Apr 5 '11 at 7:01
Maybe take this to that Ubuntu forum? – Faheem Mitha Apr 5 '11 at 7:03
It has nothing to do with gmrun, it has no dependencies for the monodoc-base package. It seems a previous installation or upgrade has not completed successfully. One of the installation scripts of monodoc-base is failing. The current version of monodoc-base is 2.6.7-3ubuntu1, so I guess you have an older ubuntu release. – forcefsck Apr 5 '11 at 7:22

That doesn't look like gmrun is any part of the problem or solution.

It looks more like something got buggered in the latest update of monodoc-base that results in it remaining unconfigured, which in turn means that monodoc-http can't be properly configured because it's missing a dependency.

According to that output, gmrun itself is already installed.
