|Operating System||PureOS||Prometheus 8.0 Beta 1 (64-bit)|
Reproducible: Every time, both through the software center and with apt.
I had wanted a management game to play on-the-go, however, when attempting to install OpenTTD through the software center, the following is shown:
When I try to run sudo apt install openttd, I get the following error:
$ sudo apt install openttd 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: libxml2 : Depends: libicu63 (>= 63.1-1~) but it is not going to be installed E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
Attempting to install libicu63 manually with apt install shows that I already have it:
$ sudo apt install libicu63 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done libicu63 is already the newest version (63.1-4). 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Just to make sure, I also attempted to install libxml2 but again, it shows that the system has it:
$ sudo apt install libxml2 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done libxml2 is already the newest version (2.9.4+dfsg1-7+b3). 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
I have attempted to reinstall those dependencies with apt reinstall but OpenTTD will still not install.
Steps to Produce/Reproduce
Using the software center:
- Open the software center (Software).
- Search for "openttd".
- Click the Install button.
- Open up a terminal window.
- Run the following command: sudo apt install openttd.
OpenTTD, along with its dependencies, should be installed.
OpenTTD is not installed and produces an error.
- I haven't tried installing the game directly from the OpenTTD website.
