xpra-1.0-r14532-1 depends upon libvpx1, but ubuntu-16.04 only contains libvpx3.
xpra also depends upon libx264-142, but ubuntu-16.04 only contains libx264-148.
The workaround is to obtain the dependencies from ubuntu-14.04.
Are you sure that your repository setup is correct?
Please post the contents of your
And the full filename of the package you are trying to install.
The package in the repository does not have the dependencies you list. And it installs fine in my 16.04 VM.
You can see the package dependencies with:

It allows the user to view remote X applications on their local machine, and disconnect and reconnect from the remote machine without losing the state of the running applications. . Unlike VNC, these applications are "rootless". They appear as individual windows inside your window manager rather than being contained within a single window.
Ahhhhh, I did indeed have an error in the repository source. Although the main ubuntu repository was set to 16.04, the winswitch repository was set to 14.04.
My apologies for the invalid bug report.
