I have checked other pages with unmet dependencies and applied the solutions but I still receive the following error:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     libminiupnpc-dev : Depends: libminiupnpc8 (= 1.6-3ubuntu1) but 1.6-precise2 is to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Can some one help with this specific unmet dependency?

Workaround that worked was downgrading:

sudo aptitude install libminiupnpc-dev

I rejected the first option and it automatically searched for another solution. Accepted the next solution which was to downgrade libminiupnpc8 [1.6-precise2 (now, precise) -> 1.6-3ubuntu1 (precise)]
