    Question How to install old package (libnetcdf6) on Ubuntu 13.04?

    I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 13.04 from from 12.04 since I was tired of using out-of-date packages. Now I find I have the opposite problem. One of the package I need (libnetcdf6) appears to be no longer supported. When I try to install it, I get the following errors:

    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install libnetcdf6
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Package libnetcdf6 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it:
      libnetcdff5:i386 libnetcdfc7:i386 libnetcdfc++4:i386 libcf0:i386 libnetcdff5
      libnetcdfc7 libnetcdfc++4 libcf0
    
    E: Package 'libnetcdf6' has no installation candidate
    When I try to apt-get the package it says replace libnetcdf6, I get more errors:

    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install libnetcdff5:i386 libnetcdfc7:i386 libnetcdfc++4:i386 libcf0:i386 libnetcdff5 libnetcdfc7 libnetcdfc++4 libcf0
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    libcf0 is already the newest version.
    libcf0 set to manually installed.
    libnetcdfc++4 is already the newest version.
    libnetcdfc++4 set to manually installed.
    libnetcdfc7 is already the newest version.
    libnetcdfc7 set to manually installed.
    libnetcdff5 is already the newest version.
    libnetcdff5 set to manually installed.
    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:
     libcf0 : Conflicts: libcf0:i386 but 1:4.1.3-6 is to be installed
     libcf0:i386 : Conflicts: libcf0 but 1:4.1.3-6 is to be installed

     libnetcdfc7 : Conflicts: libnetcdfc7:i386 but 1:4.1.3-6 is to be installed
     libnetcdfc7:i386 : Depends: libhdf5-7:i386
                        Conflicts: libnetcdfc7 but 1:4.1.3-6 is to be installed
     libnetcdff5 : Conflicts: libnetcdff5:i386 but 1:4.1.3-6 is to be installed
     libnetcdff5:i386 : Conflicts: libnetcdff5 but 1:4.1.3-6 is to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
    What is the best way to install this package? Is it safe to just add a ppa to get it and if so, how do I find which ppa to add?

    Thanks in advance for the help.
