Apt-get: “the Following Packages Have Been Kept Back”

| Comments

From here.

Problem

You install something with apt-get and it keeps telling you that some “packages have been kept back”. Great! What to do with that?

Solution

After looking at this warning for years, today I got fed up and looked after it on Google. I found the solution here. If you have a package called X kept back, then try to install it with “sudo apt-get install X“. That’s all.
