    Yes, you have installed English US while your keyboard is English UK or vice versa. Similar symptoms if you have installed any different locale than your keyboard layout. To fix it, click on the search icon and type Language. Click on the link to open the Language Preferences. Click Add a language and make sure you select the appropriate language for your keyboard (for English UK, " should be above 2 and @ above '. For English US @ above 2 and " above '. For any other Google it). Then you can make the correct one default and remove the other.
