Trisquel 8: Lightning for Icedove

I have installed T8 on two computers. On one I ran 'do-release-upgrade', on the other I did a fresh install (because 'do-release-upgrade' didn't work).

On the fresh installation, lightning/calendar works with Icedove.

On the one upgraded from T7 I can't get Lightning to work. When searching via add-ons in Icedove, I don't get an 'add' option, but rather a link to download the package. Since I would like my package manager to automatically update the add-on, I tried to install it via apt:

$ sudo apt install lightning

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
lightning : Depends: thunderbird (>= 1:45.8.0-3~deb7u1+8.0trisquel1)
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

With no luck.

What am I doing wrong, and why does Lightning work on the freshly installed T8 and not the upgrade one?

Try installing xul-ext-lightning instead.
