Ubuntu 22.04


Today when I issue


sudo apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
unixodbc : Depends: odbcinst1debian2 (>= 2.3.11) but it is not installed
Depends: libodbc1 (>= 2.3.11) but 2.3.9-5 is installed
unixodbc-dev : Depends: odbcinst1debian2 (= 2.3.11) but it is not installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

then as suggested getting


sudo apt --fix-broken install
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
Correcting dependencies... Done
The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
libodbccr2
Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove it.
The following additional packages will be installed:
libodbc1 odbcinst odbcinst1debian2
Suggested packages:
unixodbc-bin
The following NEW packages will be installed:
odbcinst1debian2
The following packages will be upgraded:
libodbc1 odbcinst
2 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

How to get out of this hole ?


I have no problems purging any package to solve this issue. This is exactly the kind of edge case which is holding up mass adoption of linux. My gut says lay low until offending package owners push their fix upstream.


I have tried many guesses including ... to no avail ... Suggestions ?
