Ubuntu 14.04 Repositories: universe, main
Ran apt-get update
Ran apt-cache policy libssl1.0.0
ddew@ddew-wsl:~$ apt-cache policy libssl1.0.0 libssl1.0.0: Installed: 1.0.1f-1ubuntu2.11 Candidate: 1.0.1f-1ubuntu2.11 Version table: *** 1.0.1f-1ubuntu2.11 0 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status 1.0.1f-1ubuntu2 0 500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/main amd64 Packages
Was surprised to see that the version advertised as the candidate is not the same as what is available from main and that the version available from main is older than the version that is already installed.
Attempted to install libssl-dev

Out of curiosity, ran apt-cache policy libssl-dev
ddew@ddew-wsl:~$ apt-cache policy libssl-dev libssl-dev: Installed: (none) Candidate: 1.0.1f-1ubuntu2 Version table: 1.0.1f-1ubuntu2 0 500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/main amd64 Packages
