Hi Kunpeng and Victor,

The Depends error is because pbuilder chroot cannot find the dependencies 
of the package you want to build.

I was seeing this same error when generating a package that depended 
on python-pip and python-wheel. To find out what repositories provide 
those packages I did "apt-cache showpkg python-pip" on my host machine which 
has Ubuntu 16.04. Also "apt-cache policy python-pip" provided some insight.

Then I added the repository to the OTHERMIRROR variable in ~/.pbuilderrc
Like this:

OTHERMIRROR="deb [trusted=yes] file:///usr/local/mydebs/ ./|deb [trusted=yes] http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial main restricted universe multiverse|deb [trusted=yes] http://ubuntu-cloud.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu xenial-updates/queens main"

The pipe is used to separate repos.

If you need to add repositories because pbuilder change root cannot see 
the package you need, you should modify that variable.

Something to notice is that the stx-packaging/setup.sh script overwrites 
the ~/.pbuilderrc with stx-packaging/configs/pbuilderrc 

Let us know if you keep having this same problem or new ones.

    Hi Kunpeng
    After working on fixing this bug, I was able to build horizon with a
    workaround, here the details:
    1) the bug is due to the lower version installed in the chroot of
    pbuilder. for example when we do a pbuilder login
    we can try to apt-get install python3-osprofiler and it will get :
    Setting up python3-osprofiler (1.15.2-0ubuntu1)
    But the dsc file of horizon set:
    Depends: python3-osprofiler (>= 2.3.0) but it is not going to be installed
    It seems that when I updated the README the bionic repo in ubuntu
    18.04 was providing the correct versions.
    2) It seems to be necessary to specify a missing ubuntu repository, in
    Debian sid seems to be a valid repository to have these versions:
    I will work tomorrow with Marcela since she face the same problem
    yesterday and add them in the pbuilderc file
    3 ) The simples work around ( work for me ) was to build the build
    dependencies using the same tooling we privide ( good we have a simple
    way ) inside stx-packaging:
    make upstream_pkg PKG=python3-oslo.concurrency
    make upstream_pkg PKG=python3-osprofiler
    ( these were the one mising in my case ) in your case you have to build
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    Depends: openstack-pkg-tools (>= 23~)
    python-mox3 (>= 0.7.0)
    python-oslo.concurrency (>= 3.7.1)
    python-oslosphinx (>= 2.5.0)
    After that, your deb files should be in
    ls /usr/local/mydebs/
    python3-osprofiler_2.3.0-3_all.deb         python-osprofiler_2.3.0-3_all.deb
    once you have fulfilled all your build dependencies you will be able
    to re-run your command
    make package PKG=x.stx-upstream/openstack/python-horizon/ DISTRO=ubuntu
    4) I am using ubuntu 18.04 this is an example of my repos:
    deb http://mx.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic main restricted
    deb-src http://mx.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic main restricted
    let me know what do you have in your case.
    I will try a hack proposed to use multiple repos according to what
    distribution we want to build:
    In the meantime let me know if this workaround works for you, hope it helps
