Or just run sudo apt-get -f install
And after the upgrade repair the broken packages in Synaptic.
--
Ps. In pkt 2. "t" is missing at end of the second line

And another thing.. For dualboot systems, at the end of the upgrade proces run:
sudo update-grub
for updating grub's menu descriptions to "...17.2..."
