I also get unmet dependensies with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS server:
$ sudo apt-get install pdns-server
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
pdns-server : Depends: libcurl3 (>= 7.16.2) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

This was easily fixed by installing the missing library:
sudo apt-get install libcurl3 -y

After this, installation of pds-server worked without any further issues

I'm starting to wonder if Ubuntu 19.04 is a supported ps version or did I miss some system requirements?

Have you tried the Ubuntu 18.04 packages?  Go to https://repo.powerdns.com<https://repo.powerdns.com/>, scroll down to Ubuntu.

Those packages may or may not work on 19.04 - but in any case I'd strongly recommend 18.04 over 19.04.  19.04 has only a 9-month support lifetime, and it's 6 months into that already, so will become obsolete in just 3 months time.  18.04 has three and a half years of support remaining.
