I've tried some of the suggestions like
sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice3.5-dict-en
[sudo] password for diederic:

E: The package libreoffice3.5-dict-en needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it. I'm at a loss what to do.
This was the error message I got when opening package manager
E: The package libreoffice3.5-dict-en needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it. E: Internal error opening cache (1). Please report.
Any suggestions? Thanks Diederic
I've just had the same issue and it caused problems with general updates and software installation too. Here is how I (finally) worked it out, in my case it was libreoffice3.6 on Ubuntu:
1) In a terminal, type:
sudo dpkg -i libreoffice3.6-dict-en
This allowed updates to work again, but installations didn't. I found a new error as a result of above and had to type:
sudo dpkg -r libreoffice3.6*
This process reported some parts that failed to remove properly so I ran it repeatedly (two times in fact) until it completed without error.
From this point on my system was working normally again and installations / updates etc work well again.
