This might not be the best place to ask this question (if not please direct me elsewhere) however I have a problem with unmet dependencies when attempting to install Virtualbox 6.0 or 6.1 on a Debian Testing system.
My guess - although I don't know if this is the case - is that
libvpx5 is not available in
testing for some reason.
sudo apt install virtualbox-6.0 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: virtualbox-6.0 : Depends: libvpx5 (>= 1.6.0) but it is not installable Recommends: libsdl-ttf2.0-0 but it is not going to be installed Recommends: linux-headers-generic but it is not installable or linux-headers-generic-pae but it is not installable or linux-headers-686-pae but it is not installable or linux-headers-amd64 but it is not going to be installed or linux-headers-2.6-686 but it is not installable or linux-headers-2.6-amd64 but it is not installable or linux-headers but it is not installable Recommends: linux-image but it is not installable E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Here is my
# virtualbox deb [arch=amd64] https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian buster contrib
I assume adding
buster is the correct thing to do here, despite the fact that I am tracking the testing branch.
How should I resolve this problem, or is it really impossible to fix?
<distro>-<version>tags. We don't use them here and existing ones were removed.
