I don't know much about how Linux works, I just wanted to download steam on my Chromebook, however, whenever I type in the commands to download it, I instead get an error.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 steam:i386 : Depends: libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 but it is not going to be installed
              Depends: libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I don't know what this means and I don't know what to do. A couple months ago I used the same commands to download steam, and it successfully installed, I later uninstalled it and now am unable to reinstall it.
