Trouble installing openSSH-server

Postby TeenieBopper » 2014-05-27 01:17

I'm new to Debian/linux; I'm attempting to create a linux server as a summer project to see if I can do it. I'm tentatively following this guide.

I've reached the point where I'm trying to install the openSSH-server package. I type sudo apt-get install openSSH-server and get the following

Code: Select all
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be install.  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:
openssh-server : Depends: libwrap0(>= 7.6-4~) but it is not installable

Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.


I ran dpkg --get-selections | grep hold and there were no broken packages.

I also ran sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list and deleted the two lines related to the cdrom

I don't know what else to do. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Post your sources.list.

It looks like you are missing the 'main' entry.

The resolution is off, so there are characters I can't read. I'm assuming the beginning of each line is "Web", but I don't know for sure.

Here is my sources.list
Code: Select all
Web http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main
Web-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updoates main

Instructions on how your sources.list file should look are in the Wiki: https://wiki.debian.org/SourcesList

As root, fix sources.list using that Wiki page as a guide, then apt-get update and try again.
