Error while resolve packages by apt


Hi and many thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Got myself a server with debian installed, after trying to get Plesk installed its giving me this error and i can not seem to find out what the problem is here is what errors iam getting :

Quote:
resolve packages with apt-get
E: Broken packages
apt-get say following:
Reading Package Lists...
Building Dependency Tree...
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:
ppwse: Depends: psa-php4-configurator but it is not going to be installed or
psa-php5-configurator but it is not going to be installed
psa: Depends: psa-php4-configurator but it is not going to be installed or
psa-php5-configurator but it is not going to be installed
sb-publish: Depends: psa-php4-configurator but it is not going to be installed or
psa-php5-configurator but it is not going to be installed

ERROR: Error while resolve packages by apt
ERROR: Installation failed
i have tried apt-get -f install but with no luck any help would be appreciated.

Try to remove the packages that have unmet dependencies, from the install list. Apt can get you into difficult situations if you happen to get something like this happen; you should just try to cancel whatever update/install process you were trying to do, i.e. "undo" the changes and not try to install those packages that have unmet dependencies.

It's a good practise to run a "test drive" before actually installing/upgrading anything, to see if the procedure would work. If you just go ahead and try to install something that has unmet dependencies, apt refuses to install such packages at all, leave the work half-way off and not even let you go back. One solution might be to find out .debs for those packages with unmet dependencies and manually install them, if possible, and see if that helps.

It looks like the packages depend on those two files... maybe only one of them because there is an OR. So my guess would be that either those packages aren't available or won't install due to some other issue. Try to get those two installed and then maybe the install will work.?

Are you using the auto-installer for plesk on Debian 3.1 stable ?
http://download1.swsoft.com/Plesk/Pl...4_i386.html#s1

I would try and remove all those packages as well, to resolve your dependency problem, then follow all the steps in the install guide..

apt-get remove psa ppwse sb-publish psa-php5-configurator psa-php4-configurator libboost-filesystem1.33.1
apt-get clean && apt-get autoclean
apt-get update
apt-get check
Follow directions for plesk instal......
