Installation failed (Ubuntu 14.04.4 - Geth)

Hi there.

I'm failing to install Geth and get the following:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
geth : Depends: ttf-ancient-fonts but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Any help would be extremely welcome. If it's not already obvious, I have minimal skills.

    Try sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    Then try install again.

    Also check that you installed all the build deps listed in the readme of geth.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks - that didn't seem to do much but I appreciate the help. Ended up abandonding Ubuntu install and have installed on Mac without any issues. (Couldn't actually see any dependencies for the Linux install in the readme though...)

    Thanks again.
