The technique for solving this problem goes like this: pick the first
thing it says won't be installed. Try to install just that package. If
the problem re-occurs, recurse. Do this until you get to a package that
provides a specific reason why it won't install, and then fix that


Why apt doesn't provide better error-reporting in this case is beyond
