libssl-dev installation problem

Hi folks,
I'm trying to install libssl-dev and apt complains about broken dependency.

root@fermi:~# apt-get install libssl-dev
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
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:
 libssl-dev : Depends: zlib1g-dev but it is not installable
              Recommends: libssl-doc but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Any idea how to fix it?

My /etc/apt/sources.list contains only:

deb [url][/url] jessie-security main non-free
deb-src [url][/url] jessie-security main non-free

PS: I am actually trying to build stunnel-5.48 and it fails for TLS directory check; based on other systems where it passed it seems I have problem with headers and libs for openssl.

Re: libssl-dev installation problem

Please see this page for current repository information.   auto.mirror is now deprecated and you need more than just security in your sources.list.  Hopefully that will fix things.

In the future please enclose terminal output in code tags as corrected above.

Re: libssl-dev installation problem


It did work after I updated sources according to document and added security.
Will align code console output posts as requested. Thx for notification.
