You mean you did "apt-cache unmet"?

I get 94 Packages with unmet dependencies (please try "apt-cache unmet"

I think this should be release critical, because those packages are
broken (at least those 35 that appear on "apt-cache -i unmet"). But you
should look if they have already filed bugs against them.
