Yes, I have a mixed system, preferring to stay with stable; but, I need
certain packages from testing and unstable . . .

However, it is python-apt that has the problem with the non-existent
libapt packages.

Nevertheless, I have stable, testing and unstable in sources.list, and
depend on apt.conf and preferences to give me the right stuff.  Yet,
this is what I get:

   # sudo apt-get -u install apt-listchanges python-apt=0.5.4.3
   Reading Package Lists... Done
   Building Dependency Tree... Done
   Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
   requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
   distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
   or been moved out of Incoming.
   The following information may help to resolve the situation:

   Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
     python-apt: Depends: python (< 2.2) but 2.2.3-3 is to be installed
   E: Sorry, broken packages

   # sudo apt-get -u install apt-listchanges python-apt=0.5.5.2

   E: Sorry, broken packages
So, what am I missing?


Grab python-apt=0.5.4.4 from snapshot.debian.net. It is the version that is actually installable on the current testing.
