[Mono-list] Unable to build in mono

Ok, I definitely have a problem with packages:

$ apt list --upgradable
Listing... Done
gendarme/stable 3.10-1xamarin1 all [upgradable from: 3.10-1]
mono-tools-devel/stable 3.10-1xamarin1 all [upgradable from: 3.10-1]
baltasarq at PC-baltasarq:~$ sudo apt install mono-tools-devel

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:
 mono-tools-devel : Depends: libmono-cecil-private-cil (< 3.12.1) but
4.0.1-0xamarin5 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
$ sudo apt list -a libmono-cecil-private-cil
libmono-cecil-private-cil/stable,now 4.0.1-0xamarin5 all [installed]
libmono-cecil-private-cil/vivid 3.2.8+dfsg-4ubuntu4 all

AFAIK, the problem is that mono-tools-devel (from Xamarin's PPA) is not
going to be installed because the libmono-cecil it asks for is an old
package, instead of the modern one.

I'm running Lubuntu 15.04 qith lxqt, updated  to the last package:
$ uname -a
Linux PC-baltasarq 3.19.0-16-generic #16-Ubuntu SMP Thu Apr 30 16:09:58 UTC
2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

If I am not missing something big, your package lib-mono-devel is
incorrectly built... could you fix that?
