I have recently updated to Linux mint rebecca. I am getting unmet dependencies for apt-get

when I am trying to apt-get install a package named monodevelop-nunit monodoc-nunit-manual then this happens.

sudo apt-get install monodevelop-nunit monodoc-nunit-manual

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 mint-mdm-themes : Depends: mint-mdm-themes-html but it is not going to be installed
 monodevelop-nunit : Depends: libnunit-core-interfaces2.6.3-cil but it is not going to be installed
                     Depends: libnunit-core2.6.3-cil but it is not going to be installed
                     Depends: libnunit-framework2.6.3-cil but it is not going to be installed
                     Depends: libnunit-util2.6.3-cil but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

then I do this

 apt-get -f install
