Ubuntu – Broken dependencies after installing Skype


After installing skype my dependencies are broken. I tried to run apt-get -f install but I only get error messages. I am running Ubuntu 12.04 on AMD64. If you need more informations please tell me.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
Depends: libjack-jackd2-0:i386 (>= 1.9.5~dfsg-14)
but it is not going to be installed or libjack-0.116:i386
Get:1 http://ppa.launchpad.net/dns/sound/ubuntu/ precise/main libjack-jackd2-0 i386 1.9.8~dfsg.2-1precise1 [202 kB]
Fetched 202 kB in 1s (105 kB/s)            

Unpacking libjack-jackd2-0:i386 (from .../libjack-jackd2-0_1.9.8~dfsg.2-1precise1_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libjack-jackd2-0_1.9.8~dfsg.2-1precise1_i386.deb (--unpack):
 './usr/share/doc/libjack-jackd2-0/buildinfo.gz' is different from the same file on the system
dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Thanks for help. Maybe its caused LMMS, but the problem appeared after installing skype. 🙂

Thanks for your support. I was able to fix it with:

sudo dpkg --remove libasound2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386

I tried to install Skype over both ways (Software Center and Skype.com). Now I just run the +x from the official tarball.
