[Solved]Dependency is not satisfiable

I'm having a little trouble installing a program.

The program I'm trying to install is brewtarget. I downloaded the .deb file, but, when I try to install it with GDebi, I get this:

Screenshot_07042013_11_11_18_PM.jpg

I searched the forum, and googled it. I found somebody having the same problem at Ask Ubuntu. He was told to run:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

So I did the same, But nothing happened.
What should I do? sad

Thanks in advance. smile

Re: [Solved]Dependency is not satisfiable

You posted this in the testing/unstable forum. Are you running stable, testing, or unstable? What do you get from the following command:

apt-cache policy libc6

If you get anything less than version 2.14, I think you are out of luck unless you upgrade to testing or sid, or try to pin to a later version of libc6 (stable has 2.13-38, and this does not satisfy the dependency for >2.14 you need). Or switch to Ubuntu ;-)

Re: [Solved]Dependency is not satisfiable

Since you posted in the Testing/Unstable area, I'll assume you've already changed your repos to either jessie/testing or unstable/sid, and that neither of these satisfies your dependency.  Just for grins, though, maybe

sudo apt-get install libc6 --reinstall

might be worth a shot.  If it doesn't help, you may need to add the experimental repo and try installing the latest libc6 from there with

sudo apt-get -t experimental libc6

Re: [Solved]Dependency is not satisfiable

^ pv, testing and sid both have libc6 v 2.17 (testing has -6 and sid has -7). There is no libc6 package in experimental.

Re: [Solved]Dependency is not satisfiable

^ It isn't in backports either.

@OP:  Short of migrating to Testing or Unstable, you may be able to download a .deb for a newer version of libc6.  Don't be surprised if that has further dependencies for you to resolve manually; we call this "dependency hell". sad

Re: [Solved]Dependency is not satisfiable

Thank you both for replying that fast. big_smile

I posted on the "unstable" board because I saw the "stable" board was for "Statler", so, since I have "Wheezy", I figured I should post here. If I posted on the wrong board, please feel free to move it.

@ Pidsley My version seems to be  2.13-38. sad

@ Vsage: just assume you're talking to a 3 year old. I just switched from Ubuntu. I don't have a clue what I'm doing. I didn't change any repos, nor do I know how to do it, or if I should do it or not. Sorry... ops

Re: [Solved]Dependency is not satisfiable

In general, you should check and install from the repos instead of using a deb from somewhere else.  brewtarget is in the Debian repos.  Just drop to the command line and:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install brewtarget

--or--

sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude -P install brewtarget

Re: [Solved]Dependency is not satisfiable

Glad I could be of help, Inodoro Pereyra.   big_smile   Don't forget to edit your initial post and prepend [SOLVED] and a space to the title; e.g. [SOLVED] Dependency is not satisfiable

By the way, to lookup packages in CrunchBang, use synaptic or enter the following on the command line:

aptitude show <package name>

-- or --

apt-cache show <package name>

It's what you key on when you read.  I did the same thing, but as I typed out my response (which I changed drastically), I thought about checking the repos, and voila, there it was.

You're new; it happens.  I did the same thing more than once when I first started posting to the forums.   wink

The more beautiful and pure something is, the more satisfying it is to corrupt.
