I've had a similar thing happen to me when installing Koha with (what were then) current versions of Ubuntu and Koha. I can't remember the exact modules, but this is the gist of what happened: When I tried to install MariaDB (a), I got a message saying that it was dependent on MariaDB (b), which was not going to be installed. When I tried to install MariaDB (b), I got a message saying that it was dependent on MariaDB (c), which was not going to be installed. My solution was to install MariaDB (c), then MariaDB (b), then MariaDB (a). Worked like a charm--no problem, lovely budgie. What made it a lot easier was that Ubuntu actually told me the file it needed, which made installing it a lot easier. Something like "Error: You have made an error." wouldn't have been as helpful.

hi Josh

you are on an older version of ubuntu, so you'll need to add the additional 'bionic' codename to your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/koha.list file

'deb https://urldefense.com/v3/__http://debian.koha-community.org/koha__;!!D7IIWT94AA!oLM6DslEHb9ZBhEpY2C0NiI0uimSdqAbAUw6JDrtuGO_pH7RIqGLZvoplglSRRvaAw$  21.05 main bionic'

you can see more info in section from the install doco
