What is the meaning of the Latin sentence "Lex posterior derogat legi priori"?

The law does not enforce impossible things
Lex spe­cial­is, in legal theory and prac­tice, is a doctrine relating to the in­ter­pre­ta­tion of laws and can apply in both domestic and in­ter­na­tion­al law con­texts.The sit­u­a­tion or­di­nar­i­ly arises with regard to the con­struc­tion of ear­lier-e­n­act­ed specific leg­is­la­tion when more general leg­is­la­tion is later passed. However, then, the doctrine called "lex pos­te­ri­or derogat legi priori" may also apply, the younger law over­rid­ing the older law
