I have a similiar problem, but I am running Woody, recently updated from a
pre-beta installation. I have 240 packages held back, and none of the
solutions suggested here works.
still does nothing beyond giving a long list of held-back packages.
apt-get install package_name
seems to work for individual packages. I tried a2ps and aalib.
Do I have to install each package by hand? Surely there an automatic way
to complete the upgrade from pre-beta-Woody to Stable-Woody?
