Apt-get problem with libc
Disclaimer, I'm a novice so bear with me. I've run into some problems with
apt-get. Currently, when trying to use 'apt-get -f install' to clean things
up I continue to get this error:

I noticed that dpkg is complaining that perhaps it isn't installed? Any ideas
of how to go about fixing this?
