[SOLVED] virt-manager/qemu-kvm won't install (chimaera/ceres)

I'm getting the following error messages when trying to install this particular packages:

For virt-manager

 The following packages have unmet dependencies:
python3-libvirt : Depends: libvirt0 (>= 7.0.0) but 6.7.0-3+devuan1 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. 

And for qemu-kvm

 The following packages have unmet dependencies:
qemu-kvm : Depends: qemu-system-x86 
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. 

This last one surprises me the most given qemu-system-x86 is already installed.
I had both packages installed until last weekend, when I had to perform a fresh Devuan install to solve some problems with my wireless card.
Do I have to wait for the proper libvirt0 version to be available from the main repo?

Re: [SOLVED] virt-manager/qemu-kvm won't install (chimaera/ceres)

The /usr/bin/kvm wrapper script has been incorporated into the qemu-system-$arch packages for testing/unstable so qemu-kvm is now just a virtual package that lists qemu-system-$arch as a dependency.

@OP: what is the disposition of your sources?

apt policy
apt policy libvirt0

Have you tried

# aptitude install virt-manager

^ That might find a reasonable solution if there are dependency issues.

Why not just use qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm or qemu-system-i386 -enable-kvm directly?

These commands helped to ensure qemu service is actually installed and runs correctly, however I need some particular features present in virt-manager interface to perform some VM configuration.

Performing this command solves the dependency issue by removing libvirt0, but the main problem persisted since virt-manager package seems to depend on that newer libvirt0 version not yet present in the main repo. I ended up rolling back to a fresh beowulf workspace and installed both packages with no problems.
