Problem installing urtool sdk-1.1.0-76


I’ve installed URSim-3.4.0-39 in a clean installation of Ubuntu 14.04, 64-bit (not the starter package).
When I run the install script of the SDK, everything goes well until I get prompted to install the C/C++ cross compiler toolchain. This is the error I’m getting:

Optional: Do you want to install the UR C/C++ cross-compiler toolchain? The toolchain minimally requires a x86_64 host system and Debian-based OS (y/N)?y

I think this is why I can’t compile “mydaemon” sample.
Is there something I can do to solve this installation issue?
Thanks in advance.

For the record, I managed to install the UR toolchain by forcing the last line of install.sh:
sudo dpkg -i urtool/.deb --> sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite urtool/.deb.
Perhaps there is a better solution, this is just a workaround.
After this step and installing scons from apt, I could build “mydaemon” sample.
