There are two ways:
Go to the PPA's web page, click on "Technical details about this PPA" and copy paste those lines into your /etc/apt/sources.list or create a new file at e.g. /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pj-assis-ppa.list with these lines as contents. Figuring out which Ubuntu version (for replacing YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE) fits best to your Raspbian can be ...
Raspbian is based on Debian and its repositories share the same code names. Basically:
wheezy and wheezy-staging are Debian 7 (code name Wheezy)
jessie and jessie-staging are Debian 8 (code name Jessie)
stretch and stretch-staging are repositories for Debian 9 (code name Stretch)
Repositories for officially released versions contain latest stable release. ...
Actually, there is some weird (but working!) way to avoid RaspBMC reinstallation in this case.
Firstly, you should prepare the following script:
echo "Start insserv clearing"
rm rc?.d/S* rc?.d/K*
typeset -l l=
while [[ $l != n ]]; do
for x in init.d/*; do
[[ -s $x ]] || continue
This answer turned up in a slightly different search. The link provided in the answer is apparently an obsolete page now. However, the following yielded a result that may answer the question:
$ apt-cache search debman
debian-goodies - Small toolbox-style utilities for Debian systems
$ sudo apt-get install debian-goodies
So far, so good... man debman ...
I have found a way to do it with aptitude.
The answer was in the similar error link, the validated answer pointed another question from SO here
Simply do :
sudo aptitude install xserver-xorg-video-dummy
Then answer no at the first solution proposed then yes:
$ sudo aptitude install xserver-xorg-video-dummy
The following NEW packages will be installed:
I install Zoneminder 1.32.3 on Raspberry Pi 3B+ with Debian 10 "Buster" version.

I have installed zoneminder 1.29 successfully on my raspberry pi 3.
Please refer my following web site for more details how-to-install-zoneminder-1-29-0-on-raspberry-pi-3
Using the terminal
Add The Jessie backports
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Then add following line to the bottom of the file and save
deb http://http.debian.net/debian jessie-...
prolly you hit a bug.
to avoid such situations its a good idea to use apt-listbugs
apt-get install apt-listbugs
apt gonna tell you when a package is buggy and you may want to pine it with "p"
it's a well known problem, the installation process hangs during "Setting up rsyslog" phase, and rerunning dpkg won't fix it. raspbmc actually advises against running apt-get update.
you may just ignore it and keep watching your movies (xbmc should work just fine), or reinstall raspbmc from scratch, optionally backing up and restoring your settings with tar ...
