Im trying to install the ros navigation stack using apt-get install ros-kinetic-navigation but it shows this error :

$ sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-navigation
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

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 ros-kinetic-navigation : Depends: ros-kinetic-map-server but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I tried building from source and i still get error like this :

-- ==> add_subdirectory(navigation)
-- +++ processing catkin package: 'map_server'
-- ==> add_subdirectory(map_server)

Hello Jayess,

I am getting a similar error with an installation of map-server. Could this also be because of dependency on an older 16.0.4 library?

The following packages have unmet dependencies. ros-kinetic-map-server : Depends: libsdl-image1.2-dev but it is not going to be installed Depends: libsdl1.2-dev but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Full details of the issue and resolution steps tried so far are here - - and here -

Any help would be much appreciated.
