When trying to install aptitude on a non-native architecture, installation
fails because not suitable installation candidates are found for some
dependencies, in particular for aptitude-common:
arm:root / 17 # uname -m
arm:root / 18 # apt-get --simulate install aptitude:i386
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.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
aptitude:i386 : Depends: aptitude-common:i386 (= 0.6.8.2-1) but it is not installable
Recommends: aptitude-doc-en:i386 but it is not installable or
aptitude-doc:i386 but it is not installable
Recommends: apt-xapian-index:i386 but it is not installable
Recommends: libparse-debianchangelog-perl:i386 but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
I assume a simple 'Multi-Arch: foreign' would fix this ?
Kind regards, and many thanks for your work on debian in general, and on aptitude in particular.
