How to fix broken packages?

I had played with the boost development packages for a while ago and now Synaptic fails to remove or add new packages, giving the below error report:
Code:
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/libboost-system_111111-natty_i386.deb: trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/libboost_system-mt.so', which is also in package libboost-system1.42-dev 1.42.0-4ubuntu2

If you open vi specify a path to a file that does not exist, vi will create a new, blank file at that location in the filesystem and open it.
True or False?
