Bug Description

Installation of libgles1-mesa (12.0.6-0ubuntu0.16.04.1) on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS failed - it needs the package libglapi-mesa (12.0.6-0buntu0.16.04.1), which does not exist. The current version of libglapi-mesa is 17.0.7-0ubuntu0.16.04.1 (xenial-updates), which does not support the installation of libgles1-mesa.

[Regression potential]
none, it just adds a dummy package to fix broken/unnecessary dependencies in 3rd party packages

For further explanation: I need the package libgles1-mesa, because I want to update the graphics driver on my HP Elitebook 8440p. For this purpose, I downloaded the "INTEL GRAPHICS UPDATE TOOL FOR LINUX* OS V2.0.2" from, which at least requires libgles1-mesa.

The installation of the package libgles1-mesa 17.0.7-0ubuntu0.16.04.2 on my system worked without any issue!!!

Afterwards the "intel-graphics-update-tool-linux-os-v2.0.2" ran successfully as well.

Great work! Many, many thanks for your kind support!!!
