2)     xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse [Not Installed]                 

     Leave the following dependencies unresolved:                 
3)     open-vm-tools-desktop recommends xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse

Try installing it without the recommends, and it shouldn't try to uninstall all the hwe-16.04 stuff:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends open-vm-tools-desktop
