[obsolete] Ubuntu QtCreator Plugins

Bug Description

I have a VM of a clean 12.04 64bit - taken from our Continuous Integration system so it is a tried and tested VM. However, when using it and following the instructions on the site (http://developer.ubuntu.com/apps/create/get-the-sdk/) it fails to install. I have mangaed to track down the failed dependencies to this:

$ sudo apt-get install qtdeclarative5-ubuntu-ui-toolkit-plugin

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.

but 1.0.0bzr25precise0 is to be installed

The documentation suggests that the SDK is compatible with 12.04, so how come it can't be installed with a clean VM? Am I missing some other dependency that is not included in the documentation? Is the PPA broken?

This bug has been marked as obsolete ... what does that mean? That 12.04 is not supported? If so why as its the current LTS release and its the only version you can buy on a new machine?

Whoops! My mistake it was linked through to an obsolete bug automagically - interesting!

OK. I have managed to get the SDK installed now. So my next task it to repeat it again on a clean VM and this time record exactly what is wrong and what actually fixed it. What I think fixed it was purging the ppa (using ppa-purge) after the installation of qtcreator-plugin-ubuntu_2.8.1.2bzr90precise0_amd64.deb and then the command "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk" worked. But I want to confirm this.
