I've usually found that problems like "held back" can be resolved by 
using a 'smarter' package utility than apt-get.

Such as synaptic  or  aptitude.   Synaptic has the 'fix-broken-packages' 
option under EDIT but usually either synaptic or aptitude will just go 
ahead and install the held-back items with everything fixed.
