That is the one most people have trouble with, you search for the -dev 
package and get: libjack-dev. This wants to remove a pile of packages that 
depend on jackd2 because the above package is for jackd1. The package to 
install is: libjack-jackd2-dev

This is one place where the idea of splitting off the -dev part of a 
package does not work well. Jackd and jackd2 should just depend on the 
correct -dev package to begin with.

That is why there is a yes/no prompt in all the good installation tools. 
(ie. Not "Software center")
