I did an dist-upgrade to ubuntu 14.04 and it uninstalled QGIS and related packages. I tried to re-install it and I receive the following error about unmet dependencies.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:  qgis : Depends:
libgdal.so.1-1.11.1 but it is not installable
        Recommends: qgis-plugin-grass but it is not going to be installed
        Recommends: qgis-plugin-globe but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken

QGIS version in the repos of Ubuntu is older that qgis.org version. For this reason it is preferable to install with repos of qgis.org. Please, see my answer in:

QGIS updating problems

  • I use the unstablegis wich has the latest qgis version (ppa:ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable). I had install it but after the dist-upgrade ... nothing. You use the debian repo. Do you thing is more stable than ubuntu repo? – Vassilis May 9 '15 at 11:47
  • This deb http://qgis.org/debian trusty main is an Ubuntu repo because has the Ubuntu name version (trusty); in my case is utopic because I have the 14.10 version. I think that is preferable to use the stable version. I don't have any problem with my QGIS. – xunilk May 9 '15 at 12:03
  • I try a lot of things but the broken pacage still there.... your solution worked. Thanks a lot. – Vassilis May 16 '15 at 8:43
