I was trying to install
git svn apt package on xenial, and ran into the following error
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
git-svn : Depends: git (< 1:2.7.4-.)
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
I cannot reproduce the error on a xenial docker container and essentially the same build script worked on xenial 20 days ago.
Not entirely sure how to work around this without requiring sudo access, which I have thus far avoided.
