Of note, The development package [libcec-dev] requires an Ubuntu version of
the [libcec6] package, but the package to be installed is not labeled with
the Ubuntu versioning, and also appears to be slightly newer.

The below instructions of updating, looking at package policy with
apt-cache, then performing a --dry-run [performs every operation as a test
without writing anything to disk nor changing anything on the system] to
see what a reinstallation attempt would produce, looks like a good way to
see a bit more information about what is actually going on under the hood.

Hope this helps,
