Use 'b' to select the next broken package. Alternately, press 'e' to
view what aptitude thinks you should do about it. Aptitude comes up
with several suggestions, press '.' to see the next one, or ',' to see
the previous one. When you've found a solution that you like, press
'!' to make it stick, or hit 'q' to return to the main screen.

As an alternative to that block of text:

b - move to next broken package
e - view suggestions for fixing broken packages.
. - view next suggestion
, - view previous suggestion
! - apply suggestions
q - return to main screen

Hope this helps...
