This question already has an answer here:
I am trying to install git on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS but every time I get this message. I have already uninstalled libpcre2-8-0, and synaptic shows nothing in broken packages. It shows only when I mark git-core package to install, and I don't know what to do after.
$ sudo apt install git 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: git : Depends: libpcre2-8-0 (>= 10.22) but 10.21-1 is to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
