.deb depends on Python 2.7.5-5, but Debian Wheezy only has 2.7.3 #174

I'm using mopidy on my Raspberry Pi running Raspbian, which is based on Debian wheezy.
I cannot upgrade python-spotify anymore, apt says:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 python-spotify : Depends: python-cffi but it is not going to be installed
                  Depends: python:any (>= 2.7.5-5~) but it is not installable

Is this exact sub-sub-version (x.x.5) of python necessary?

You're probably installing packages built for jessie (stable) on wheezy (oldstable). Luckily, the apt.mopidy.com server has pyspotify packages built for both jessie and wheezy.

  1. Run sudo wget -q -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mopidy.list https://apt.mopidy.com/wheezy.list to get sources for wheezy instead of jessie
  2. Run sudo apt-get update
  3. Run sudo apt-get install python-spotify

(On an aside, Raspbian should get their thing together and release a jessie-based image.)

Updated 2016-01-17: New command to get sources.list for wheezy.


That was it, thanks for your help.
At Raspbian + Jessie: +1, I'm also waiting.

I'm currently updating the pyspotify installation docs to focus on distro packages first, now when pyspotify 2 have been available for a while is starting to get packaged.
