Below are the results of trying to install Steam in 16.10.

sudo apt-get install steam

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 gcc-5-multilib : Depends: libc6-dev-i386 (>= 2.11) but it is not going to be installed
 libc6-dev-x32 : Depends: libc6-dev-i386 (= 2.23-0ubuntu5) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

How do I solve these unmet dependencies?

Best Answer

Steam has two i386 architecture unmet dependency packages depending on GNU C Library: 32-bit development libraries for AMD64 (libc6-dev-i386). To correct the unmet dependencies, open the terminal and type:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -f install  
sudo apt-get install steam
