Package: libboost-log1.55.0
Version: 1.55.0+dfsg-3
Severity: normal
File: libboost-log

Dear Maintainer,

I am trying to cross compile an application that uses libboost_log. My host
system is has the amd64 architecture and the target system a armhf
I tried to install both packages with:

$ sudo apt-get install libboost-log1.55.0 sudo apt-get install
libboost-log1.55.0:amd64 libboost-log1.55.0:armhf

The response:

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:
 libboost-log1.55.0 : Conflicts: libboost-log1.55.0:armhf but 1.55.0+dfsg-3
is to be installed
 libboost-log1.55.0:armhf : Conflicts: libboost-log1.55.0 but 1.55.0+dfsg-3
is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

The response is misleading because i do not have held broken packages.
I did use:

sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

But that didn't resolve anything (logically).
