apt-get would not run - solved
For two weeks or so I have been baffled by the fact that apt-get would not
*do* anything. dselect worked fine, but not apt-get. Lurking on
debian-devel gave me the clue to the problem.
I had libc6_2.0.7u-5 and dpkg_126.96.36.199 installed. A message from Jason
said that dpkg versions 188.8.131.52 through 184.108.40.206 should not be used with
libc6_2.0.7u-5, so I downgraded dpkg to 220.127.116.11.1 and apt now works as
HTH somebody else.
