push "Apply" :
"An error occurred
The following details are provided:

I goo /var/cache/apt/archives and look this package is here dpkg_1.15.8.13_i386.deb wtf???

Well, it seems there is an "unsupported dependency problem".

Try that in a console, with root rights:
aptitude autoclean
aptitude clean
aptitude update
aptitude safe-upgrade
