Dear all,

I already installed ROS-indigo once on my Ubuntu 14.04 which was working perfectly but I was obliged to delete ROS-indigo.

Now that I am trying to re-install ROS-indigo it does not accept the full desktop version installation and gives me this error

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

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-perception but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I searched on the previous answers and nothings works and still it has a problem with the "ros-indigo-perception"

Thanks, Hamed

I should mention that I tried Synaptic and

$sudo apt-get install -f

In order to fix the broken packages, but still is not working.
