I'm trying to install perf on Ubuntu 18.04. However, I've run into a
libc dependency problem:
$ perf WARNING: perf not found for kernel 5.0.0-21 You may need to install the following packages for this specific kernel: linux-tools-5.0.0-21-generic linux-cloud-tools-5.0.0-21-generic $ sudo apt install linux-cloud-tools-5.0.0-21-generic The following packages have unmet dependencies: linux-tools-5.0.0-21-generic : Depends: linux-tools-5.0.0-21 but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. $ sudo apt install linux-cloud-tools-5.0.0-21 The following packages have unmet dependencies: linux-tools-5.0.0-21 : Depends: libc6 (>= 2.28) but 2.27-3ubuntu1 is to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. $ sudo apt install libc6 libc6 is already the newest version (2.27-3ubuntu1). $ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS Release: 18.04 Codename: bionic
Has anyone else hit this and it there any way around it?
