Can't get Bitcoin core to install on Ubuntu 15.04
Computer says "Cant install due to missing dependencies"

Trying to install Biotcoin-qt either through installing the deb file, or using the terminal, cant get it working. libdb4.8++ was one of the delendencies.

What does it need me to do?

Do you have all of the dependencies installed?
You can find them here:
https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/master/doc/build-unix.md
They are in a section labelled dependencies (for most of them you should be able to just use (sudo) apt-get install <package name>" and install the package (as most of these are common to linux and will be findable from the operating system itself - or should be).

EDIT:
This is the exact code needed for the main dependencies:
Code:
sudo apt-get install build-essential libtool autotools-dev automake pkg-config libssl-dev libevent-dev bsdmainutils

Did you run this?

Thanks that seems to have worked. Core is now installed. But, it has disabled Armory somehow. Now, Armory will not open when launched.
Is that a known issue?

Im not sure if it's a known issue or not.
You might want to direct your question to the Alternative Clients > Armory board.
