can't apt-get install dovecot-common


# apt-get install dovecot-common


Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
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.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
dovecot-common: Depends: libmysqlclient12 but it is not installable
E: Broken packages


How I resolve?
Thank you.

Hya,

Dependency problem.

aptitude handles better than apt-get. Try
Code:
aptitude install dovecot-common
and read output. Also, read package info.

Happy Penguins!
