unmet dependencies for gir1.2-accountsservice-1.0


I'm trying to install a software package which depends on gir1.2-accountsservice-1.0. However, when I attempt to install gir1.2-accountsservice-1.0 I get the following message:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gir1.2-accountsservice-1.0 : Depends: libaccountsservice0 (>= 0.6.35-0ubuntu7.2) but 0.6.35-0ubuntu7.1+SCSp3 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

How can I fix this? I tried getting it from here: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source....35-0ubuntu7.2
but when I try to build this package I get a rather excessive list of dependency issues, so I would much rather install this through an apt-get install command.

My system runs Description: Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (Trusty), with unity desktop

No offense, but before you give a sarcastic reply, you may want to put on your reading glasses and actually read what's been written in the topic: "However, when I attempt to install gir1.2-accountsservice-1.0 I get the following message" ... "unmet dependencies". The link you point at is exactly what I wrote in my first post:

Code:
sudo apt-get install gir1.2-accountsservice-1.0
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... 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.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 gir1.2-accountsservice-1.0 : Depends: libaccountsservice0 (>= 0.6.35-0ubuntu7.2) but 0.6.35-0ubuntu7.1+SCSp3 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Good, let's be nice again

Hi:

I still have trouble with dependencies sometimes sorry you have ran into dependency hell.
In the past I would install all of the dependencies first and than install the actually pkg I wanted.
In your case you have held broken pkg's and I'm not good with that; sorry.

Maybe this thread will help.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...es-4175510237/

I'm thinking that if you are able to fix the held broken packages than theoretically you should be able to install libaccountsservice that gir1.2-accountsservice-1.0 seems to be dependent on.

Quote:

That particular error message may indicate that you have held packages, but it may also indicate a different problem.

You can get a list of actual held packages with:

dpkg --get-selections | grep hold
Found that here:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/22323...roken-packages

Hope that helps.

Thank you for the suggestions! Unfortunately, I was not able to resolve the problem. The system reports that there are no held packages.

Your Welcome.

What I don't understand is that the terminal is saying that it was:
Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

But when you check, the system says that there are no held packages.
I find that bizarre-

Did installing libaccountsservice0 make any difference?
https://packages.debian.org/sid/libaccountsservice0
http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty-up...countsservice0

What version of Ubuntu are you running?
