[Digikam-users] Digikam on Mint 17 after update

I've been using Mint for quite a long time. Now 17 Cinnamon is running on my
AMD 64 desktop. had a Digikam 4.2 working quite well until a couple of days
ago. That day I updated the system with Update manager. And after that - no
more Digikam!
I tried to re-install with apt-get commands (yes, I did apt-get update
first) and what I'd got was:

/Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree 
Reading state information... Done
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:
digikam : Depends: libkgeomap1 (>= 1.0~digikam4.2.0) but it is not going to
be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I am just a simple desktop user, no Linux expert. I assume it must be some
sort of problem with libkgeomap (version or what?) but have no clue of how
to fix it. 
Please, help me with some for-dummies-cookbook-like instruction.

Thanks, regards,
