Does your software&updates setting allow third party source download?

I met this problem before and that's the way I solved it .

The Indigo Installation Instructions make specific note of dependency issues like this, if you're using 14.04.2 or later.

If you're using 14.04.2 or 14.04.3, you may want to try the steps listed in section 1.4
