For sure. This was left only on this rubish test-box which was from days
when the mirror temporarily was unavailable. Thanks for the hint.

This is definitely not the problem.

The problem of missing perl-5.6, perl-5.6-base, ... vanishes if I'm using
unstable but this is definitely not what I wanted to do.
Even getting the files from the pool directory of the mirror doesn't help.
Most of all my installed packages seem to be unavailable. Is there any
status file under /var/lib/dpkg which could be scrambled?
Moreover libapt-pkg2.7 is missing from testing and unstable which avoids
installing of current debconf, apt-move, ...
In which pool-directory could I find libapt-pkg ?

Its completely the same result.
