hmm. if you have "apt-setup" available, that might reset
your sources.list, if that's the problem. but you may be
further up the creek than that. (out of my league, if so.)

i wouldn't expect slrn to affect apt -- gnome-helix is
an X window environment, so i wouldn't expect much interference
there, either. did anything interrupt power while installing?
or maybe a power loss last week might scramble one bit that
wouldn't leave any fingerprints until now?

There are only two places in the world where time takes
precedence over the job to be done.  School and prison.
