I have both testing and unstable in there.  I was under the impression
that I could
have both in there, and with the default set to testing in
/etc/apt/apt.conf, I could then
have an unstable package installed by giving the '-t' option I believe
to apt-get.
Seems like I was mistaken.  I'm pretty sure I picked this up from one
of the FAQs
or the manuals.

I'll comment out the unstable locations, and redo the update for
apt-get, and then
see what happens as has been suggested in one of the other emails.

Thank you for the help and pointers.
