The problem is, the normal way doesn't work in your control file for Build-Depends. Build-Depends: g++ (>= 5.1.0) But you could use g++-5.1 Build-Depends: g++-5.1 But this more like a cheat and will fail on all systems with g++ newer than 5.1.

That is because, as mentioned in the PPA page, the PPA is deprecated and will NOT receive ANY UPDATES any more. The 'latest' version available in that PPA is 1.18.1-1.
