Most likely you forgot to update the list with available packages

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
before trying to install the program

A quick check confirms that current version is of these files is 'deb8u3' but apt-get requests 'deb8u2'

Something very odd there. You say you have a "clean install" yet the repositories are set to Jessie, which doesn't (without some messing around) support the Pi 3B+.
So just to check, you say "Pi 3+", is that actually Pi 3B+ or something else?

A "clean install" of Raspbian for a Pi 3B+ will mean a new download of the latest version of Raspbian.

Then also, as above, always use

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
before other apt install or upgrade operations (apt is a newer alternative to apt-get, and is preferred for direct command-line use).
Note that the error messages even suggest that.
