Installation failure

I’m starting up my pisound for the first and trying to install the pisound software (using curl https:/ | sh) and its failing with the following error:

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:
pisound : Depends: pisound-btn but it is not going to be installed
Depends: pisound-ctl but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I have had my pisound for a few months but have only just got round to installing the hardware on my Raspberry Pi B+ board running Raspbian. Any ideas what may be wrong?

Hi, it could be caused by an older OS build. At least Raspbian Jessie is required. Try updating your software by running:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

And then retry installing the Pisound software.

This was solved by doing a clean install of Raspbian Stretch, original version where the issue occurred was Wheezy.

Another option would have been to manually dist-upgrade at least to Jessie.
