View Full Version : Unmet dependencies

October 10th, 2013, 09:40 PM
hi, i am install this evening one lib (libmysqlclient15off_5.0.96-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb) after this installation does not seem to do anything, because I get always this error for any installation.

if i try to install mysql:

root@ts:~# sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-clientReading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libmysqlclient15off : Depends: mysql-common (>= 5.0.96-0ubuntu3) but it is not going to be installed
mysql-client : Depends: mysql-client-5.5 but it is not going to be installed
mysql-server : Depends: mysql-server-5.5 but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

ty for help

What version of Ubuntu are you running?
mysql-client 5.0 versions have been long superseded. The current version is 5.5

Where did you get libmysqlclient15off_5.0.96-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb from?
I do not see it in the Ubuntu repositories.
I do not see a dependency of mysql-client by that name.
