Well I ran a update and an upgrade today and then apt-get spurts out this output on performing a upgrade(also applies to dist-upgrade):

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
The following packages have been kept back:
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

An apt-get -f install reveals nothing, just that 1 package not upgraded. Manually trying to install moka-icon-theme:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 moka-icon-theme : Depends: moka-icon-theme-symbolic but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Trying to install moka-icon-theme-symbolic:

Package moka-icon-theme-symbolic is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'moka-icon-theme-symbolic' has no installation candidate

Does this mean that it's a problem with my Ubuntu installation or do I have to give a knock to the developer? Edit: It was fixed today. I contacted the maintainer and it's all fixed now. Thanks!

Perhaps moka-icon-theme-symbolic is not yet available (i.e., the developers have not yet uploaded it to the repositories). Try again later and let us know. –  carnendil Oct 23 '13 at 15:24
