I'm trying to install the latest gcc-7 package from Jonathon F's PPA. Looks like finally now there is a successful build for amd64 as of 2018-02-23.
I met with the following dependency issues when running
sudo apt-get install gcc-7.

Previously, I did install
gcc-7 from Ubuntu's ppa but that was for
7.2. I have removed that package.
Running Synaptic, here's a list of suspicious packages:
Any suggestions on how I can resolve these dependency issues and install gcc 7.3?
