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:
aptitude: Depends: libapt-pkg-libc6.7-6-4.6
Depends: libept0 (>= 0.5.26) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
Attempting install of libept0 fails because it depends on the same
version of apt, and that's already the newest version.
