- How do I resolve unmet dependencies? 13 answers
I am trying to install Gmsh in 12.04 x64:
xxx@sjb-linux:/320/installslinux/gmsh$ sudo apt-get install gmsh Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: gmsh : Depends: libmed1 (>= 3.0.3) but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. xxx@sjb-linux:/320/installslinux/gmsh$
I have now tried all the advice I could get
sudo apt-get -f install sudo apt-get clean
with no success, these commands report absolutely no problem.
I'll appreciate help.
