I've been trying all day long to install VDR using the following guide.


All goes to plan until I come to execute the command

sudo apt-get install vdr-plugin-vnsiserver

At which point I receive the following error

Some packages could not be installed. 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.
vdr-plugin-vnsiserver : Depends: vdr-abi-2.2.0-debian
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I've trawled through dozens of websites looking for solutions, including installing installing vdr-2.2.0 but all to no avail and I have absolutely no clue what direction to go in now.

I'm using Ubuntu server 16.04
The linked guide is outdated / wrong. Ubuntu 16.04 comes with vdr 2.2.0 and vnsiserver 1.3.1:


Note that Ubuntu vdr packages are not compatible with yavdr. Either use all packages from yavdr ppa or ppa-purge yavdr and stay with Ubuntu packages.
