Try again, don't forget to apt-get update prior to that.

What I had to do was go in with Synaptic and get rid of openoffice.org-l10n-en-gb and openoffice.org-l10n-en-za an it removed one more package than I ran an update and mark all packages and it worked.

It's upgrading openoffice but for some reson those packages are getting in the road. hope this helps a bit
