acroread 9.5.1 is not installable on Ubuntu Precise amd64 system
Nominated for Precise by Adam Stokes
Adobe Reader is missing from Ubuntu Raring & Quantal;
meanwhile, Adobe Reader 9.5.3 has been released upstream,
see bug #1106447.
This can be reproduced using aptitude, synaptic, apt-get, and dkpg. For example:
$ apt-get install acroread-common
$ apt-get install acroread:i386

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

The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
acroread:i386 : Depends: acroread-
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
I believe the problem is that acroread-common package is not being created with a "Multi-Arch: foreign" field.
