Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable

 pantheon-files : Depends: libcloudproviders0 (>= 0.3.0) but it is not going to be installed
                  Recommends: contractor but it is not going to be installed
                  Recommends: tumbler-plugins-extra but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

have try fine other way like snap or flatpak or appimage but no luck.

  • You need to contact package developers and ask them to lower the dependency version. – N0rbert Sep 13 at 17:55

At first you need to enable universe repository with

sudo add-apt-repository universe

and then you can manually download and install newer version of the library with

cd ~/Downloads
wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/universe/libc/libcloudproviders/libcloudproviders0_0.3.0-1_amd64.deb
sudo apt install ./libcloudproviders0_0.3.0-1_amd64.deb

and then install pantheon-files with

sudo apt-get install pantheon-files
