Ubuntu 13.10 error with libboost1.49-dev

I had many many errors trying to install libboost1.49-dev.

This resulted in not being able to update packages, make any other installs or software updates. Big Problem!

Errors such as
Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages

Unpacking libboost1.49-dev (from .../libboost1.49-dev_1.49.0-4_amd64.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libboost1.49-dev_1.49.0-4_amd64.deb (--unpack):

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)


What worked for me is as follows:




sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/libboost*


I then ran:



sudo apt-get install -f


These may not help, and aren't a guaranteed fix, but if they do help then great!
