apt-get install sendmail fails

I was getting an error message when trying to install sendmail on a linux server.

Using the command sudo apt-get install sendmail i was getting the following error:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
sendmail: Depends: sendmail-bin (= 8.13.8-3) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

Easy fix, just type:

sudo apt-get install sendmail-bin

press ‘y’ and let that install, then type:

sudo apt-get install sendmail

and it’ll install fine this time! hope this helps someone else out too!
