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:
 deluged : Depends: python3-libtorrent (>= 1.1.1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
what is python3-libtorrent (>= 1.1.1) but it is not going to be installed and how i can solve this problem and use torrent on my gnu/linux pc iam using zorin os
#linux newbie + horrible English

It's in another package. If this were Slackware, I'd look in MANIFEST. You need to install the package that has python3-libtorrent. tells you how to do it in Ubuntu.
