You have to try the following solutions:
Synaptic Manager cannot be able to installed software because of the different dependencies or any other problem similar to inner compiler failure: Segmentation error. You have to delete the software contradicts with the command dpkg-r package name. You can use this solution every time for the correction of the software package and you have to use also sudo dpkg-configure-a for you to assemble the software which do not installed.
