FYI postgresql11 + PostGIS 2.5.3 appears to be broken on xenial

An noticing this new error this morning with the ppa:ubuntugis/ppa xenial repository.

$ sudo apt install -yq --no-install-suggests --no-install-recommends postgresql-11-postgis-2.5-scripts postgresql-11 postgresql-client-11 postgresql-11-postgis-2.5
WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface. Use with caution in scripts.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 postgresql-11-postgis-2.5 : Depends: libgeos-c1v5 (>= 3.7.0) but 3.5.0-1ubuntu2 is to be installed

This appears to be broken upstream.

GEOS has been updated now in the repo and builds are happy again, whew :slight_smile:
