Having a problem install sendmail on a Ubuntu 14,04 droplet

  • Posted February 18, 2015

Can anyone tell how i can solve the following problem I’m getting when I try to install sendmail:

sendmail : Depends: sendmail-base but it is not going to be installed Depends: sendmail-bin but it is not going to be installed Depends: sendmail-cf but it is not going to be installed Depends: sensible-mda but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try ‘apt-get -f install’ with no packages (or specify a solution).

Are you installing via apt-get? If so did you first do an apt-get update? If you are attempting to install from a deb package using dpkg you should try running apt-get -f install as directed by this message as it will usually resolve the issue.
