apt-get would not run - solved
For two weeks or so I have been baffled by the fact that apt-get would not
*do* anything. dselect worked fine, but not apt-get. Lurking on
debian-devel gave me the clue to the problem.
I had libc6_2.0.7u-5 and dpkg_22.214.171.124 installed. A message from Jason
said that dpkg versions 126.96.36.199 through 188.8.131.52 should not be used with
libc6_2.0.7u-5, so I downgraded dpkg to 184.108.40.206.1 and apt now works as
HTH somebody else.
