View Full Version : error: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages?

October 21st, 2016, 04:30 AM
So i just installed ubuntu alongside windows(works fine can boot either os) and am trying to install runescape. i want this on ubuntu for a seperate reason, but down to the topic at hand, i am given a error upon executing this in the terminal

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:hikariknight/unix-runescape-client

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install unix-runescape-client

i have sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade. i have tried aptitude. i have looked into synaptic package manager but not yet used it. none of which are helping, and it appears i have nothing held as apt-mark showhold results in nothing. So i ask what could be the problem? im not greatly computer savvy but help is very appreciated, some more of what the terminal spits out that may help >
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
unix-runescape-client : Depends: openjdk-6-jre but it is not installable or
openjdk-7-jre but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

upon trying synaptics, it shows no broken packages. So im pretty lost at this point.
