Since there's no systemsettings-dbg on Ubuntu 18.04, I found on this page that I could add repositories which contain systemsettings-dbgsym and try to install that. I've added the repositories, did apt update. But when trying to install the package I get an error:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 systemsettings-dbgsym : Depends: systemsettings (= 4:5.12.7-0ubuntu0.1) but 4:5.12.6-0ubuntu0.1 is to be installed

I thought that I might have too old version of systemsettings, but apparently not:

$ sudo apt-get install systemsettings
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
systemsettings is already the newest version (4:5.12.6-0ubuntu0.1).
systemsettings set to manually installed.

Apparently ddebs.ubuntu.com and archive.ubuntu.com are not synchronized in package versions.

So, how can I install the debug symbols for the systemsettings package? Or how can I upgrade my package so that its version matched that of -dbgsym one?

    5.12.7 is in -proposed. 5.12.6 is in -updates. Does not seem like a sync problem. Check your sources. – user535733 Oct 26 '18 at 12:06
  • @user535733 thanks, this points into the right direction. I've made an answer. – Ruslan Oct 26 '18 at 12:26

Thanks to the comment by @user535733, I found what the problem is. I just had to remove (or comment out) the line with -proposed from the ddebs.list generated when following the Wiki.Ubuntu page on debug symbol packages.

After removing this line and doing apt update, I've successfully installed systemsettings-dbgsym.
