AW: apt-get install refuses to installs older versions of dependencies
Thank you very much for suggesting `--allow-downgrades` and your additional explanations.
Unfortunately, I get the same error as before:
$ sudo apt-get install --allow-downgrades foo=1.0.0

The following information may help to resolve the situation:
