I am having issues with
apt-get on my Raspberry Pi. This is the output when I try and install a package:
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo apt-get -f install cowsay Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: emacs23 : Depends: libm17n-0 (>= 1.6.1) but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
sudo apt-get -f install didn't help:

Any suggestion on how this issue can be resolved, beside reflashing the SD and starting again?
