I get this error while installing ubuntu-sdk on clean install of Ubuntu 13.04 64bit:

szymon@szymon-PC:~$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk

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

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
 ubuntu-sdk : Depends: qtcreator-plugin-ubuntu but it is not going to be installed
              Depends: qtcreator-plugin-ubuntu-cordova but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Any ideas ?

I had the same problem. You should add the following ppa as well:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:canonical-qt5-edgers/qt5-proper && sudo apt-get update

sorry, it didn't help –  Majster-pl Aug 21 '13 at 21:54
    
I just edited my answer. Make sure you update after adding ppa. –  AliNa Aug 21 '13 at 22:06
    
Of course I did sudo apt-get update after running your first command. –  Majster-pl Aug 21 '13 at 22:12
