apt problems and why?

I get the following error message 

home:/home/daniel# apt-get -f install
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Correcting dependencies... failed.
Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
  libesd0: Depends: esound-common but it is not installed
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused
by held packages.
E: Unable to correct dependencies

I cannot solve this problem and also I cannot install any package. Any
help? This has to be looked at as one of Debian's biggest weakness. We
boast about Debian easy upgradability but it does sometimes show Msoft

I have tried to install  esound-common but it cannot because of something
else, untlimately the system is un-upgradable.
