I did have to re-upload amd64 packages because I firstly built then (no
intentionally) against Qt 4.4.3. Your packages cache seemed to contain the
old packages before I did re-upload and the mirror have the information
about the newer one.
You were reinstalling all the time the packages in your cache, while getting
the information of newer packages (as more recent date), so apt was telling
you there were new packages.
When you cleaned your cache, fetched the newer packages from the mirror and
installed then, everything was finaly "updated".
At least, that is what i think happened.
