Hi, After following all the steps on ROS Wiki,

I get stuck on

 sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-desktop-full

I get the error

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 ros-indigo-desktop-full : Depends: ros-indigo-desktop but it is not going to be installed
                           Depends: ros-indigo-perception but it is not going to be installed
                           Depends: ros-indigo-simulators but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I have tried to fix dependencies

sudo apt-get -f install

I have also tried

sudo apt-get install libsdformat1

Nothing has worked.

Ouput of:

uname -m

I didn't try

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-dev-lts-utopic mesa-common-dev-lts-utopic libxatracker-dev-lts-utopic libopenvg1-mesa-dev-lts-utopic libgles2-mesa-dev-lts-utopic libgles1-mesa-dev-lts-utopic libgl1-mesa-dev-lts-utopic libgbm-dev-lts-utopic libegl1-mesa-dev-lts-utopic

Because it can break X-Server.

What to do?

I installed libboost1.54-dev

sudo apt-get install libboost1.54-dev

And after that did the full install. It worked.

Did you try sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dev-lts-utopic? If all else fails, you can build from source
