synaptic / apt-get problemn

It's been awhile since I used this old acer 10 inch netbook.
I have M-12 oin it and when I went to use synaptic and or apt-get i get an error

The package linux-image-4.0-4.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64 needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it

How do I solve this?
