I wanted to install the Ubuntu tool kit to get started programming, but when the install was nearly on its end it threw up the following error:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 qt-components-ubuntu : Depends: libqt5core5 (>= 5.0.0) but it is not installable
                        Depends: libqt5gui5 (>= 5.0.0) but it is not installable
                        Depends: libqt5qml5 but it is not installable
                        Depends: libqt5quick5 but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I don’t know what the problem is and what I am able to do about it!

Help is appreciated.
