The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  upstart: PreDepends: sysvinit-utils (>= 2.86.ds1-23) or
                       busybox (>= 3:1.6.1.legal-1osso8) but it is not going to be installed
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.

ii  busybox              3:1.10.2.legal-1osso Tiny utilities for small and embedded systems

As far as I know: 3:1.10.2.legal-1osso is >= 3:1.6.1.legal-1osso8.

Why can't I install upstart?
