          Hi Xema,

          generally, please ensure you have universe repository installed with sudo add-apt-repository universe

          as I replied to Elvin, we depend on a set of packages that if you hold them broken, the package may not be installable. Please check if you can fix your broken packages before installing OpenProject, e.g., with ‘apt-get install -f’. Please consult the forums for further help.
