I always run "apt-get -d dselect-upgrade" by hand, then move the
packages by hand from /var/cache/apt/archives to my local archive (for
use from other machines) and install the received packages using dpkg -i
This works perfectly fine here.
Please note, that I always run "dselect update" to update the package
listings and not only "apt-get update". Maybe that's the problem above?
