    I am trying install php5-dev on debian wheezy but get this error:

    root@linux:~# apt-get install php5-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:
    php5-dev : Depends: libssl-dev but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: libtool (>= 2.2) but it is not going to be installed
    Recommends: dh-php5 but it is not installable
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    … You are using HSTS header with “includeSubdomains” and “archives.dotdeb.org” have no working certificate (your gandi certificate does not include subdomains, it is valid only for http://www.dotdeb.org). Chrome prevent access either HTTP version (because of HSTS) and HTTPS version because certificate is invalid and HSTS with includesubdomains is set.
