Tango 9 Virtual box machine broken packages

Just running the tango 9 VM on virtual box for the first time and issuing:

sudo apt-get install qtbase5-dev

produces a broken packages error, preventing thus from installing the core Qt libraries.

Moreover, it is also impossible to install the qt4 libraries, because

sudo apt-get install libqt4-core

leads to broken packages again.
Hi Giacomo,

this is a problem we noticed together before. It seems to be specific to qt. I just managed to install valgrind using apt-get on the VM. Maybe you can try removing the qt packages and then installing the ones you need. I am not an expert on qt so I don't know what to remove nor what the consequences could be. I notice on my laptop running Ubuntu 15.10 I have qt4 and qt5. Maybe doing an update on the packages will help. Maybe there is a qt expert on the forum who can help?
