Bug Description

I am tryingto enable Japanese input in Ubuntu 12.04 (English version).
In order to doing that I need ot install the Japanese language pack.
Trying form the "Language Support" commands gives error "Broken packages database". I thougt it was local so I "sudo apgt-get install -f" several times, upgraded some of the packages, rebooted.
Trying from synaptic I have got the error that this package is broken. So no installation is possible.

I think the bug is not worth investigating further. due to a hardware issue I had to place my SSD in another box and thus reinstall my linux partition. Then Japanese language installation worked like a charm. Probably several upgrades on my former installation drove to a wrong condition not alowing installation for this language.
Alternatively, the language packages might have been repaired.
