in the past few weeks, Debian has seen a major transition (of the core
components for any C++-related software in Debian) that affected *many*
packages and included the renaming of some dependencies of inkscape.
only within the last days, this big change started migrating from
"unstable" to "testing".

this basically means big disruption which should eventually go away
"automatically", once all packages have been transitioned from unstable
to testing.

in the meantime you could try using a better dependency resolver, e.g.
by intalling the packages with aptitude:

# aptitude udpate
# LC_ALL=C.UTF-8 aptitude install inkscape

i also see that you are running a mixed jessie/stretch (aka
"stable/testing") system, which i don't think is supported at all (i
think that one of the reasons for this is exactly because it is
impossible to support working systems that depend on a state both
*before* and *after* such big transitions we are currently seeing).
