apt-get: impossible situation


I'm trying to install imagemagick, but encounter a problem with
apt-get. The following error occurs.

Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... 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.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
  imagemagick: Depends: libmagick5 (= 4: but it is not
  going to be installed
  E: Sorry, broken packages

Am I doing something wrong? If so, what? I have made sure to apt-get
upgrade before, and can't really think of anything else... Trying
to manually install the dependency only results in even more

Thanks in advance for any advice,
