This is quite unfortunate. Update tests teTeX -> TeX Live belong to the
usual testing procedure that Norbert (main TeX Live maintainer) is
doing. So it would be interesting which special situation occurred on
your system.

This, however, is very interesting and might well be the special
situation mentioned above. Do I understand you correctly that you were
running a testing system with teTeX from stable and then tried to update
that to TeX Live from unstable?

If so, then this update path is currently not supported. Whether or not
it will be supported for Sarge->Etch once Etch gets released hasn't been
decided yet.

Again very unfortunate.

I don't have my development machine here, so I can't check this. Are the
other files from texlive-base, too?
