I cant install the bind server I was trying to do clean rap cache and update.

This is what I get after running the apt-get install bind8 / apt-get install -f bind9 :

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
