But I'm a bit surprised by this. Looking at the ubuntugis-unstable page, 
I don't see any dependency to qgis-plugin-grass to grass 7.2. On the 
contrary, it depends on grass-core (>= 7.4.0).

Maybe there was just a missing "apt-get update" before trying to install 
the plugin ?

Try again with ubuntugis-unstable, apt-get update, apt-get upgrade and 
see what happens.
