I'm using Ubuntu 11.04, and I'm trying to install TortoiseHg. I've applied the PPA from TortoiseHg's website, so that
apt-get can actually find it. But whenever I type
sudo apt-get tortoisehg, I get this:
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: tortoisehg : Depends: mercurial (>= 1.8) but 1.7.5-1ubuntu1 is to be installed E: Broken packages
I understand what this means: I need to install Mercurial 1.8. The problem is that I can't. If I try
sudo apt-get install mercurial, it says that 1.7.5 is the latest version, which it most certainly isn't.
So how do I convince this thing to install a more recent version of Mercurial?
I tried the commands from this answer to install Mercurial, but that didn't help. It again said that Mercurial was up to date.
