I am trying to install ubuntu-sdk on my ubuntu desktop 14.04 using this command

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk

But I am getting this error Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libcheese-gtk23 : Depends: libclutter-gtk-1.0-0 (>= 0.91.8) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libcogl15 (>= 1.15.8) but it is not going to be installed
libcheese7 : Depends: libclutter-gst-2.0-0 (>= 0.10.0) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: gstreamer1.0-clutter but it is not going to be installed
libclutter-1.0-0 : Depends: libcogl-pango15 (>= 1.15.8) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libcogl15 (>= 1.15.8) but it is not going to be installed
ubuntu-sdk : Depends: ubuntu-sdk-libs-dev but it is not going to be installed
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.

I run

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

But no luck please help.

  • I followed the other post it didn't help me I don't have any file inside the directory /var/log/dist-upgrade/ @heemayl – Mohsen Ibrahim Mar 17 '15 at 11:48
  • Thanks @SylvainPineau that solved my problem. But actually I don't know how did that solve my problem? – Mohsen Ibrahim Mar 17 '15 at 12:18
  • @Mohsem Ibrahim You have to learn about installation packages, dependencies and how package manager works in general. Ubuntu as Debian derivative is using dpkg/apt package manager. More info: wikipedia and debian – zloster Mar 17 '15 at 13:04
