I was able to install ros-indigo-desktop-full just fine following the install instructions for Ubuntu 14.04.

However, when I try and upgrade by running:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade ros-indigo-* -y

I get the error:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 ros-indigo-ipa-canopen : Depends: ros-indigo-ipa-canopen-core but it is not installable
                          Depends: ros-indigo-ipa-canopen-ros but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I don't even have ros-indigo-ipa-canopen installed. Why am I getting this error and how do I resolve it?

The command: sudo apt-get upgrade ros-indigo-* -y is asking apt to upgrade all of the ROS Indigo packages that exist; not just the packages that are installed.

If you want to upgrade all of the packages that are installed, just do: sudo apt-get upgrade.
