[SOLVED] install openssh-client and fixing broken dependencies

No need to remove dependent packages (ssh-askpass-gnome
ubuntu-desktop) to reinstall openssh-client by apt-get.

Just reinstall openssh-client by dpkg without removal of any other packages.
$ sudo dpkg -i openssh-client

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 Precise.
While installing package offline (no internet access), I ended up
installing old-version of openssh-client (1:4.7p1-8) by using dpkg. I
then got the following broken dependencies.

ubuntu12.04LTS:~$ sudo apt-get check

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libssl1.0.0 : Breaks: openssh-client (< 1:5.9p1-4) but
1:4.7p1-8ubuntu1.2 is installed
openssh-client : Depends: libkrb53 (>= 1.6.dfsg.2) but it is not
Depends: libssl0.9.8 (>= 0.9.8g-4ubuntu3.1) but it
is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

I downloaded correct version of openssh-client (1:5.9p1-5) and tested
reinstall with apt-get at follows.

ubuntu12.04LTS:~$ sudo apt-get -o dir::caceh::archives=/home/myUbuntu
-f -s install

The following packages will be REMOVED:
openssh-client ssh-askpass-gnome ubuntu-desktop
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 3 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
Remv ubuntu-desktop [1.267] [openssh-client:amd64 libssl1.0.0:amd64 ]
Remv ssh-askpass-gnome [1:5.9p1-5ubuntu1] [openssh-client:amd64
libssl1.0.0:amd64 ]
Remv openssh-client [1:4.7p1-8ubuntu1.2]

I am concerned whether this installation may cause further problem by
removing ubuntu-desktop which has multiple dependencies.

Do you have any idea how to safely install openssh-client with new
version without much trouble? I have attached current status of
dependent packages (ubuntu-desktop; ssh-askpass-gnome; libkrb53;

Thanks a lot.
