I get this error message no matter what i have tried:
There was an error commiting changes. Possibly there was a problem downloading some packages or the commit would break packages.

hopefully this is just the old "java installation with adept" issue.
at some point of the java installation, users must accept the license.
adept is not very good at making this clear to users.
most users then kill adept, seeing it just sitting there doing nothing.
this, though, "breaks" the packages database.
if i remember correctly, the license acceptance involves you scrolling
down a text in a terminal and typing "yes" or something...
so, if this is what happened to you, the following commands should fix things.
if it isn't, then these commands won't be useful, but won't be harmful either.
so, here it goes...
a) close adept, synaptic or any other program dealing with the packages database
b) open a terminal emulation (e.g. konsole) and type:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
this should fix the packages database.
sudo apt-get install --fix-broken
this should resume the broken java installation.
make sure you accept the license.
