Try "apt-get update", followed by "apt-get dist-upgrade"

Any errors? Any more processing happen?
Yeah, lots more processing, mostly of things I have no use for (such as apache). It's installing 124 new things, upgrading 64, and removing 3.

There's a problem while doing the upgrade:
dpkg-divert: rename involves overwriting '/usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xft/Xft.h' with different file '/usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xft/Xft1.h' not allowed.

It bombs while unpacking libxft-dev_2.1.-6_i386.deb
Unless you know you need dpkg-divert, you might try "apt-get --purge remove dpkg-divert" to see if the process can finish successfully. Until apt-get finishes successfully, you've got (at least some) brokeness in your system, and in this case, that brokeness appears to be fairly wide-spread.

Those things you don't need, such as apache, you can remove (as above). However, be aware that some other package which you do need may require some of those packages that you believe you don't need, in which case, you actually do need them. But you'll be warned if that's the case when you try to remove a package, so try removing them anyway.
