Need to get 0 B/2,958 B of archives. After unpacking 19.5 kB will be used.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gcc-aarch64-linux-gnu : Depends: gcc-5-aarch64-linux-gnu (>= 5.2.1-13cross1) which is a virtual package and is not provided by any available package

The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

Keep the following packages at their current version:
1) gcc-aarch64-linux-gnu [Not Installed]

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?]

Raspbian Jessie or stretch ?

Though a full update of the OS should be first step:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo reboot
adieu

My other Computer is an Asus CS10 ChromeBit running Chrome Operating System.
HP Envy 4500 Wireless Printer supported by HPLIP software in Raspbian Stretch.

That is interesting. Raspbian is 32 bit, and it is missing an aarch64 gcc package, it does not make since that a 64 bit package would be required for anything on a 32 bit os.
RPi = Way for me to have fun and save power.
100% Off Grid.
Household TTL Electricity Usage = 1.4KW/h per day.
500W Solar System, produces 2.8KW/h per day average.

As my original post stated.

It's not a newbie error. Tried tagging it in aptitude to verify the problem? I tried on my own machines and again at a friends house. Same problem.

Cheers!

Raspbian is indeed 32 bit, but it should be able to cross-compile/cross assemble for other platforms. The package is in the repository to do this, but at least one dependancy (and perhaps sub-dependancies for that) are unavailable. It's probably just a bug in the build of the repo, but conceivable that Broadcom don't want people finding shortcomings in their v8 implementation and have "applied some influence" (there are possibly a few, but my tests so far indicate they should not have too much to worry about in that respect. :-)

Cheers!
