Thank You for your answer. May a ask a bit more:
a) I have to stay with testing or reinstall the whole system
b) Smarter: I can hold dpkg and dselect from testing and downgrade all
the other packages with /etc/apt/preferences
Just for my understanding, cause I read the Changelog of dpkg (1.10):
* Split dselect into its own package. dpkg Pre-Depends on it
to make sure no weird things happen during an upgrade but this
will allow us to make dselect option at some point in the future.
and dpkg (1.10.3)
* Move dselect.cfg to dselect package. Closes: Bug#152132

* debian/control: dselect replaces dpkg << 1.10.3, as we moved the
dselect config file and manpages from dpkg.deb to dselect.deb.
This leads to a separate and optional dselect package, does it?
Why then a
# dpkg -r dselect --force-all
is not possible?
Thank You for your time.
