Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

You've NOT provided any release details; but there is mention of bionic in your initial post.

If you look at the builds for bionic & xenial for arm64 & armhf failed; thus problems should have been expected if using either of those releases.

The following will complete the missing details from your report.

Please execute the following command only once, as it will automatically gather debugging information, in a terminal:

apport-collect 1957120

When reporting bugs in the future please use apport by using 'ubuntu-bug' and the name of the package affected. You can learn more about this functionality at

Yes, that is the case.

To retest, I launched a brand new instance in AWS. bionic, arm.

Tried to install the ppa and git again. A similar error appeared:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 git : Depends: git-man (> 1:2.33.1) but 1:2.17.1-1ubuntu0.9 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Then, ran apport-collect.

Not sure if it worked because it said "ignoring..". Here's the output.

# apport-collect 1957120
Package git-core not installed and no hook available, ignoring
