not using Synaptic myself, but from the Synaptic Help:

To Fix Broken Packages
Synaptic Package Manager will not allow any further changes to the
system before all broken packages are fixed.
To show all broken packages choose the Broken filter.
To correct the broken packages perform the following steps: choose Edit
▸ Fix Broken Packages from the menu.
Choose Edit ▸ Fix Broken Packages from the menu.
Apply the marked changes to actually fix the packages:
Click on Apply in the toolbar.
Choose Edit ▸ Apply Marked Changes from the menu.
Press the key combination Ctrl+E.
You will be asked for confirmation. Check the summarized changes that
will be applied. To continue with the actual repair confirm the changes
click on Apply
During the processing of the changes you will see a progressbar. Wait
until the changes have been applied. This can take some time depending
on the number of changes. Afterwards you will be returned to the main
The progressbar is not available on Debian system. Instead you will see
a detailed terminal output.
