It means what it says but admittedly it sounds like Klingon at first.
The libcec-dev package wants a particular version of libcec6
installed. But that version is not available for some reason.

This is most likely because you have a few different package sources
enabled and maybe one needs to be disabled, or maybe one needs
to have a different priority applied to it.

First I would try

  apt update
  apt-cache policy libcec-dev
  apt-cache policy libcec6

to see what versions you hava available and installed.

Then I would try

  apt install --dry-run libcec-dev

to see if that gives any more detailed information
This won't do anything but will do a dry-run through the process.
