Yes, i read about and googled it, but at you can used this to sync, is
between lines :) Lot of work to found one option. Because this was my
first time when package states were out of sync in upgrades since slink.

I have little bit spare time and seems at there is best answer with
package management system is recommend.

Pointer which i founded by Google.


and right place.


The Debian package management system has a rich history and many choices
for the front end user program and back end archive access method to be
used. Currently, we recommend the following.

    * apt-get(8) for all commandline operations, including package
installation and removal, and dist-upgrades.
    * aptitude(8) for an interactive text interface to manage the
installed packages and to search the available packages.
    * update-manager(8) for keeping your system up-to-date if you're
running the default GNOME desktop.
