The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 veracrypt : Depends: libwxgtk3.0-gtk3-0v5 but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Above is the error which appears on trying to install the veracrypt deb file in kubuntu 23.04. I am trying to install veracrypt version 1.25.9 downloaded from official webside. I also tried to install the gui version using the veracrypt generic installer, and it too seems not working. Tried installing libwxgtk3.0-gtk3-0v5 using apt, but apt failed to find the package. What should i do ?

I tried installing the .deb from here but that also failed due to unmet dependencies

This is very much a VeraCrypt problem, and not an Ubuntu problem.

You'll note they have builds for Ubuntu 18.04, 20.04, 21.04, 21.10 and 22.04, but not 23.04. I'd recommend one of the following:

  • Using a VeraCrypt supported release of Ubuntu
  • Use the "Generic installer" available on the VeraCrypt download page
  • Contact VeraCrypt and request a 23.04 release build.

You need to install the exact version of the library, as well as for other products such as AppImage Apps

sudo apt install libfuse2

Then download the veracrypt-1.25.9-setup.tar.bz2 file from the veracrypt repository, then extract the file and run the tool as follows:

sudo ./veracrypt-1.25.9-setup-gtk3-gui-x64

When prompted do not install it but click on "Extract .tar Package File".The installation package is extracted on /tmp.
Extract tar file:

tar xvf veracrypt_1.25.9_amd64.tar.gz

The usr folder is created on the extraction folder, in its entirety must be copied as follows:

sudo cp -R usr/* /usr/

Now you can run veracrypt from the command line or from the application menu

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
