I am trying to install PHP 5.4 on a Samsung chromebook 3 running crouton.c (Crouton link: https://github.com/dnschneid/crouton)
I am following the instructions for the upgrade from http://www.barryodonovan.com/index.php/2012/05/22/ubuntu-12-04-precise-pangolin-and-php-5-4-again
But face some dependency issues when I try to install PHP after adding the repository in the above link.
Pasted below is the message I get when I run the
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. I have also removed PHP completely from my system and try to install it after adding the
ondrej/php5 repository but get the same message as the one below.
The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: php5 : Depends: libapache2-mod-php5 (>= 5.4.14-1~precise+1) but it is not going to be installed or libapache2-mod-php5filter (>= 5.4.14-1~precise+1) but it is not going to be installed or php5-cgi (>= 5.4.14-1~precise+1) but it is not going to be installed or php5-fpm (>= 5.4.14-1~precise+1) but it is not going to be installed Depends: php5-common (>= 5.4.14-1~precise+1) but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
I prefer not installing from source. Could some please provide some suggestions to fix this issue or any alternate methods?
Did you forget to run:
apt-get install -f
