It looks as though some packages didn't get downloaded during the
"Get" phase.  The messages should indicate which ones.  Rerun
dselect "Install" a few times to see if they come across, if not,
you can change your sources.list to go to a different source site
and try again.

When you change your /etc/apt/sources.list is this situation, run
apt-get update to make sure all is well before going back into
dselect to run Install.
