After unsuccessful upgrade of Gnome3 packages in new Precise Pangolin 64-bit environment I get this error at installing gnome-shell-extensions-user-theme package:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gnome-shell-extensions : Conflicts: gnome-shell-extensions-user-theme
but 3.2.0-2~webupd8~oneiric is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I tried to remove by running sudo apt-get purge gnome-shell-extensions-user-theme but get this:

Package gnome-shell-extensions-user-theme is not installed, so not removed

My Gnome Classic profile works well but Gnome3 session can't run.

How to resolve this error?

The package gnome-shell-extensions-user-theme from WebUpd8 team PPA as broken dependencies better use for extensions.

But first you've got to get rid from the old files.

sudo rm -r /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/*

rm -r ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/*

This will clear all gnome-shell extensions.

Next restart gnome-shell and you're ready to go.
