dselect (actually dpkg) won't downgrade existing packages. I upgraded
from 1.2.7 + some hamm to 1.3.1 + some hamm off a CD.
I did have a few problems with the suggestions that dselect made
regarding conflicts - it suggested I get rid of most of my -dev
packages. This wan't a big problem. There shouldn't be any trouble
with such a small upgrade using dpkg-ftp, for example, if you're
careful. If you're not sure, hold the package with `='.
(I was actually quite impressed.)
