For the past three days UN has been displaying a notice not to upgrade. I've tried Synaptic and it wants to remove several packages. Today, reloaded and the upgrade pkgs increased from 240 to 249. It wants to remove even more, now kdeaddons (I'm stil running KDE 3.5.10). Pkgs it want's to remove: ekiga, evolution data server, kdeaddons, libautotrace4, libdirectfb0.9_25-devel, libpq4, python-ctypes. Choosing, for example, just to install ekiga, brings up dependencies: libdirectfb1.4_0, libopal3.6.6, libopal3.6.6-plugins, libvncserver0. None of these libs are listed in to be upgraded, but as not installed. Could it be that ekiga now needs new libs that were not originally installed or that they have been renamed? I'm relatively sure that the upgrade would work, then I would have to reinstall those pkgs that have been removed. Apparently, this is a dependency script problem. I'll wait a bit.
