- How do I resolve unmet dependencies? 13 answers
Whenever I try to
apt-get install a thing. This outputs:
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: openjdk-7-jre : Depends: openjdk-7-jre-headless (= 7u25-2.3.10-1ubuntu0.12.10.2) but it is not going to be installed Depends: libgif4 (>= 4.1.4) but it is not installable Depends: libatk-wrapper-java-jni (>= 0.30.4-0ubuntu2) but it is not installable Recommends: libgnome2-0 but it is not installable Recommends: libgnomevfs2-0 but it is not installable Recommends: libgconf2-4 but it is not installable Recommends: ttf-dejavu-extra but it is not installable E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
How can I resolve this?
