I am working on a small project which requires Linux. So I made a live-usb for Ubuntu 14.04. I tried to install
g++ and some other stuff but the
apt-get does not work. It shows that I have
unmet-dependancies. In fact, I cannot install anything.
What am I doing wrong? Should I make a persistent Live-usb? Or is it not possible to use apt-get in live environment at all?
My laptop is very shabby so I cannot boot into it because of serious hardware issues with my internal HDD. So live-usb is the only option I have.
Example of what happens:
root@ubuntu:~# sudo apt-get install build-essential 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: build-essential : Depends: g++ (>= 4:4.4.3) but it is not going to be installed Depends: dpkg-dev (>= 1.13.5) but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
The thing is, there are no broken packages.
