You should probably not do "dist-upgrade" unless you have a specific
reason to use it. It attempts to resolve all conflicts automatically,
often removing packages when this may not be your intention.
If a normal "apt-get upgrade" does not work, you can use a package
manager like aptitude or dselect, which will give you a chance to choose
how conflicts are resolved.
