After my HTPC system upgrade from Ubuntu 13.10 to 14.04 I can’t seem to install Kodi.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kodi kodi-bin
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
kodi-bin : Depends: libsdl2-2.0-0 (>= 2.0.0) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
I had a few PPA’s insatalled on old stystem and removed them all from sources list. I also ppa-purge the ream-xbmc’s ppa and re added it. Some other ppa’s I removed from sources list, as ppa-purgeing them failed. The old system had XBMC running without issues. The upgrade was smooth, and had no errors.
I see some other people had same problem, but solved by manually installing a deb. This makes me think my apt is very confused, and I would rather not break my setup further.
This system was installed using an older version of this guide. I additionally installed Gnome for occasional web browsing.
How do I go about debugging this package problem? What would make my system not know about libsdl2-dev? Did I find a bug in the team-xbmc ppa?
Some more info:
$ apt-cache policy libsdl2-dev
