Oh, I missed the "Broken packages" part. If "aptitude update" (or
"apt-get update") doesn't fix the broken packages error, that means the
packages available from your sources are in a bad state. I'd trim my
"/etc/apt/sources.list" file down to the official Debian repositories
(that is, get rid of the Alioth sources, etc). Once you have a working
system again, you can try the Alioth way again.
