Hi Julien,

the embassy packages in Squeeze will not work with the emboss package in Sid,
Squeeze or Testing. The emboss packages in Sid now have a symbols file and this
problem will not happen again.

Please either remove the embassy packages, or unblock the emboss and embassy

Note that the emboss package in Testing is now unsupported, contains upstream
bugs that are fixed in Sid, and lacks a feature that is important in the field
of bioinformatics in 2010 (working with SAM files).

Have a nice week-end,
