I just installed the latest Debian version (8.4) on a virtual machine, and everything went fine.
I then installed nginx server from the Debian repos and I got version 1.6.2, while the latest version available is 1.10, so I'd like to update it.
The way I tried to do it is maybe wrong but it's all I've found so far.
I first updated my repositories by adding the nginx repo to the
sources.list file this way :
sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://nginx.org/packages/debian/ `lsb_release -cs` nginx' >> /etc/apt/sources.list" sudo sh -c "echo 'deb-src http://nginx.org/packages/debian/ `lsb_release -cs` nginx' >> /etc/apt/sources.list" curl http://nginx.org/keys/nginx_signing.key | apt-key add - sudo apt-get update
Then, I tried to install latest nginx version with this command:
sudo apt-get install nginx
And I get this issue :

How can I solve this?
