I can not install ros, here is the error I get

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

I have tried using

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

but nothing helps I still get the error, what can I do to get around this?

Part of the problem appears to be that libboost is not installable.

What OS and architecture are you running? Try installing the dependencies and retry until you can get to the lowest level error. You can also try aptitude for better error reporting.
