I am following this link to install gazebo's dependencies.

When I run this command sudo apt-get install -y libgazebo7-dev, I get this error:

[sudo] password for cl201-9:

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:
libgazebo7-dev : Depends: libsdformat4-dev but it is not going to be installed
                  Depends: libgazebo7 (= 7.15.0-1~xenial) but it is not going to be installed
                  Depends: gazebo7-common (= 7.15.0-1~xenial) but it is not going to be installed
                  Depends: gazebo7-plugin-base (= 7.15.0-1~xenial)
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

How can this be fixed?

This usually happens because libignition-math3 is not installing. Install it first sudo apt-get install libignition-math3 then install the dependencies you were trying to install.
