That's a typical totally useless apt message, it never tells _why_ it
won't install something.

Try "aptitude -s install acesso" (you don't have to be root for that),
and look what solutions, if any, aptitude proposes. There is a prompt
("Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?]") at the end, if you press "n",
aptitude tries to find another solution.
