[UDUNITS #FQI-238313]: HQH-143932: CDFconvert Configuration: problem with udunits2

I think I understand.  You're trying to install the CDFconvert package and this 
package needs the UDUNITS package.

Unfortunately, the CDFconvert package isn't one of ours, so we don't know what 
to do either.  You might try contacting the developers of that package with 
your problem.

Or, you might try installing the original UDUNITS package rather than the 
UDUNITS-2 package.  They are two different packages.
