    Hi,
    I tried to install ISPConfig on Debian 9 "Stretch", and it works fine ! However, I need php 5.x, and it seems very difficult to install on Deb9 ?
    As a solution, I decided to use Debian 8 "Jessie" instead. I followed the guide https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/perfect-server-debian-8-jessie-apache-bind-dovecot-ispconfig-3, but I get stuck in installation of Bind9 and dnsutils:

    [email protected]:/opt/certbot# apt-get install bind9 dnsutils
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    dnsutils is already the newest version.
    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:
    bind9 : Depends: libbind9-90 (= 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u13) but 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u14 is to be installed
    Depends: libdns100 (= 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u13) but 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u14 is to be installed
    Depends: libisc95 (= 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u13) but 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u14 is to be installed
    Depends: libisccc90 (= 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u13) but 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u14 is to be installed
    Depends: libisccfg90 (= 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u13) but 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u14 is to be installed
    Depends: liblwres90 (= 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u13) but 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u14 is to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    Google seems not to have an answer.
    I have used this guide before, at that time with no problems at all ?
    What can I do to get past this ?

    Maybe just temporary situation where package repository is not in sync. It looks like a package requires a newer version that is available. This should not happen on Debian stable or oldstable distribution. Try running apt-get update and then try again. If this does not help, change the package repository the host is using, in /etc/apt/sources.list. If still not successful, try again tomorrow and hope the stuff is in sync completely.
