APT installing DSE 6.7 packages when installing DSE 6.0.11

Following instructions from this link on my test machine.

https://docs.datastax.com/en/install/6.0/install/installDEBdse.html

root@pramod03:~# apt-get install dse-full=6.0.11-1

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:
dse-full : Depends: dse (= 6.0.11-1) but 6.7.7-1 is to be installed
Depends: dse-libgraph (= 6.0.11-1) but 6.7.7-1 is to be installed
Depends: dse-libsolr (= 6.0.11-1) but 6.7.7-1 is to be installed
Depends: dse-libtomcat (= 6.0.11-1) but 6.7.7-1 is to be installed

Depends: dse-libspark (= 6.0.11-1) but 6.7.7-1 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Don't understand why its asking some thing related to 6.7 although trying for 6.0

@pramod.dba31_92912 DSE 6.0.11 is no longer the latest version. The latest version is DSE 6.7.7 so you need to explicitly specify the version for all packages as stated in step 6 of that link you provided like this:

$ sudo apt-get install \
  dse=6.0.11-1 \
  dse-full=6.0.11-1 
  dse-libcassandra=6.0.11-1 \
  dse-libgraph=6.0.11-1 \
  dse-libhadoop2-client-native=6.0.11-1 \
  dse-libhadoop2-client=6.0.11-1 \
  dse-liblog4j=6.0.11-1 \
  dse-libsolr=6.0.11-1 \
  dse-libspark=6.0.11-1 \
  dse-libtomcat=6.0.11-1

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I will get the document updated to make it clearer. Cheers!
