My original goal was setup service-network-ssh on Nexenta Illumos. As a result of the command

apt-get install service-network-ssh

I got the following message

Reading package lists...
Building dependency tree...

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 libstdc++6-4.2-dev : Depends: g++-4.2 (= 4.2.3-2nexenta7) but it is not going to be installed
                      Depends: gcc-4.2-base (= 4.2.3-2nexenta7) but it is not going to be installed
                      Depends: libstdc++6 (>= 4.2.3-2nexenta7) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

I tried to do

apt-get -f install

and received

E: Could not perform immediate configuration on 'libstdc++6'. Please see man 5 apt.conf under APT::Immediate-Configure for details. (2)

Based on the error log of the first command, I tried to remove the package from gсс, to set gсс version 4.2.3 and with the command

apt-get --purge remove developer-gcc-44

I got

E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

In connection with all this there was a question: What to do - to delete gcc manually (and again to set, and then to set ssh through a repository, but my chief considers, what for the Nexenta operating system gcc shall be set through the package manager) or to try to set service-network-ssh manually, not through a repository? If the second option preferable, advise please links to service-network-ssh installation instructions to Nexenta. If with the errors given above, it is possible to be overcome differently, tell as.
