Shouldn't that be apt-cache unmet | grep -n ^Package | wc -l? Using
tail counts duplicated packages, AFAICT. You should have far fewer
than 425 packages with unmet dependencies.
Besides, it should probably be something like
[alisdair@letdown ~] $ apt-cache unmet | grep '^ Depends' | wc -l
As Suggests don't count, right? Please correct me if I'm wrong.
