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 package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
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
E: Sorry, broken packages

I think this bug is not (only) package specific but rather a general bug
because an all-deb (with probably an pingus.xxx.i386.deb in woody ?) entered
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

That's a design decision. Debian has arch-independent packages, and
the fact that they are broken on some architectures is hence mostly

foo-data should usually not depend on foo, only the other way round.
This issue should be discussed with the individual package maintainers

As the submitter had already suggested to close this bug, and as the
possibility to fix it are low anyway, I'm closing the bug.
