Unfortunately your question is not clear but I will answer it as per my understanding. I guess you are installing applications with apt-get install command. To fix the issue of "the package not fully installed or deleted." You need to follow these steps.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -f
The 2nd command should install the dependent packages that you missed in earlier installation.
You probably better install Synaptic, which is a graphical package manager and easier to handle than terminal. Some packages are dependent on others. Synaptic has the option to remove and/or fix broken packages and dependencies, so I'd say give it a try and reinstall using Synaptic. You can install Synaptic via Software Center or terminal using the following commands:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install synaptic
I installed Synaptic Package Manager, found the application I wanted to remove, and it was simple. I've used Synaptic for years in other distros, just didn't think of it.
