This question already has an answer here:

I just tried to install Crossover (Codeweavers) via the Ubuntu Software Center in Ubuntu 13.10 32-bit, but it didn't finish the installation. It just got stuck at about 90% (progress bar). After waiting approximately one hour, nothing happened. The installation was stuck, so I decided to restart the computer.

The issue now is: Every time I try to reinstall Crossover via Software-Center, Ubuntu gives me a message box with the following error message:

Package dependencies can not be resolved

This error could be caused by required additional software packages which are missing or not installable. Furthermore there could be a conflict between software packages which are not allowed to be installed at the same time.
The following packages have unmet dependencies
crossover-trial: Depends: crossover-trial-bin (= 12.5.0-0ubuntu1 but 12.5.0-0ubuntu1 is not going to be installed)

Any ideas about how to fix it?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Can you please translate the error message and post it here or post an English version, it may make it easier to solve this problem. – i08in Nov 15 '13 at 17:22
Sure! The error says: The package dependencies could not be resolved. This error could be caused due to additional required software, that is missing or can not be installed. In addition, there could be a conflict between packages, which can not be installed at the same time. – Aquablue Nov 16 '13 at 14:58
Hello Jobin, thanks for the info. I tried some of the steps mentioned in the post you linked, but none of them worked. The post concentrates on the default version of Wine, but I am using Codeweavers version of Wine, which is a bit different. Also, the error I am getting was caused by accident, due to me having to reset the machine after the install froze. It doesn't seem to be a compatability issue, because I was able to install Crossover via the Software-Center on a seperate computer (also using Ubuntu 13.10 32-bit). Both machines have a fresh install of 13.10. – Aquablue Nov 16 '13 at 15:53
Could you edit your question and add the output of sudo apt-get check? – Braiam Nov 18 '13 at 0:25

Try running

sudo apt-get -f install

If that fails,

sudo apt-get install crossover-trial-bin

Hello Frank, thanks for the tipps. Unfortunately, none of the commands worked. I made a screenshot of what the terminal spits out. Here is a picture of it: link <- Basically, the first command just failed because it didn't find any dependencies to fix. The second command says that crossover-trial-bin has unresolved dependencies and that it requires "libphoto2-2" and "libphoto2 port0". Further down the line it tells me that these packages can not be installed and that it can't resolve the problem, because of defect/broken packages. Thx! – Aquablue Nov 16 '13 at 15:04
