Yes, I tried fixing broken packages.
Reload in Synaptic brings up no errors.
Marking all upgrades displays a dialog-The chosen action... and to be upgraded is nc. When I chose to mark it this error displays-
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
Fix broken packages resets the framework so nothing displays as broken.
Reloading repeats the above steps.
