RE: cannot install aptitude: Broken packages


Yes, I changed every mention of stable to woody so I could upgrade all of my
current woody packages before upgrading to sarge. Then I did apt-get update.
Thanks for your help.

did you change your sources.list before attempting to install
aptitude? that may cause problems. I haven't read the release notes,
so can't say, but if it recommends using aptitude, you'd want that
installed before you do anything else.
