Frappe Framework installation fails on Ubuntu


I am trying to install Frappe Framework and ERPNext on a fresh installation of Ubuntu.

I am following steps laid down in this Installation Guide.

Here is the error that I am getting:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Note, selecting 'python-dev-is-python2' instead of 'python-dev'
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
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 python-dev-is-python2 : Depends: python2-dev but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Please guide as to how to solve this.

I am using Ubuntu 20.04.3

Have you tried to install python2-dev manually and then tried again?

Just type sudo apt install python2-dev to install this.
