I'm trying to install blender via sudo apt install blender

but it gives the following error

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 blender : Depends: libopenimageio2.1 (>= but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I ran sudo apt search libopenimageio2.1 and it outputs:

libopenimageio2.1/focal amd64
  Library for reading and writing images - runtime

How do I fix this?


1 Answer 1


I fixed it by recursively installing the sudo apt install libopenimageio2.1

and the all it's dependent packages
