I am trying to install sli3er engine on a Raspberry Pi using this document. However, when I install the dependencies, I got an error here;

INSTALL COMMAND: sudo apt-get install libextutils-cbuilder-perl


Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies: libextutils-cbuilder-perl : Depends: perl (>= 5.13.9) but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Here is the output of perl -v:

This is perl 5, version 24, subversion 1 (v5.24.1) built for arm-linux-gnueabihf-thread-multi-64int (with 80 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)
