recently I tried to install pure under Ubuntu 18.04.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dr-graef/pure-lang.bionic
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pure pure-docs

worked, but launching

sudo apt-get install pure-complete

yields the following error message:

Die folgenden Pakete haben unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten:
pure-complete : Hängt ab von: pure-math soll aber nicht installiert werden
Hängt ab von: pure-web soll aber nicht installiert werden
E: Probleme können nicht korrigiert werden, Sie haben zurückgehaltene defekte Pakete.

That means, pure-complete has unresolved dependencies, problems are with pure-math and/or pure-web. Are there any known issues?

By the way, already after "
add-apt-repository" I can see in the synaptics package manager that there are now "defect packages",
which disappear as soon as I remove the repository.
Are there any ideas? thank you in advance!

Best regards

This problem has also been reported in the GitHub issue tracker. For now, my
suggestion is to install Pure using the Nix package manager.

nix-env -i pure

Best regards,
