Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that

The following information may help to resolve the situation:
Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
pingus-data: Depends: pingus but it is not installable

woody, while the corresponding package (pingus.xxx.alpha.deb) did not.
Or it is an bug in apt, which should state that this all deb is
currently not instalable on this particular architecture since the
(binary dependent) dependencies are not (yet) fullfilled in the selected
