Hi! I was trying to install Gazebo 5, following the tutorial guide and I encounter this problem:

$ sudo apt-get install gazebo5 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: gazebo5 : Depends: gazebo5-common (= 5.0.1-1~trusty) but it is not going to be installed Recommends: gazebo5-plugin-base but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I believe they are probably broken. Can someone check if I'm the only one with this problem?

I believe that is your system which has some inconsistency. Probably you did an update and then this problem arose.

I would recommend you to install gazebo5-common (sudo apt-get install gazebo5-common) If the a similar message appears indicating depends on xxx package, then try to manually install that xxx package. Repeat this process down until you are able to install. At that point, move back and install all the packages that gave you an error message, in the reverse order.

It works for me, at least ;-)

They were broken, yes:

They should be fixed after releasing the 5.1.0 version
