Sound can be very frustrating.  I have had my own share of problems
with it lately.

Hmm. Did I blog about it last time? I should check. But there are some changes this time, what with the audio group coming into play. I think I have that taken care of.

No.  Everything is fine.  Therefore you have a problem on your end.

Maybe I should set LANG to en_US.UTF-8 to be sure I'm not missing something.
Verify that you have "wheezy" not "testing" in your /etc/apt/sources.list

Checked that. That's where I started on the upgrade.
Did you remember to 'apt-get update'?

Always do, I'm pretty sure the upgrade would not have proceeded without it.
What is the output of:

  apt-cache policy debian-archive-keyring

Hand copying since that's faster than mailing it to myself from the other machine:

   Installed: 2012.4
   Candidate: 2012.4
   Version table:
   *** 2012.4 0
             500 ftp://ftp.jp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy/main i386 Packages
             100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

April 2012?

Pick one of the packages that you are trying to install.  Say it is
called "foo".  What is the output of 'apt-cache policy foo'?


I think this is the one I tried to install:

  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 0.99.80-5.1
 Version table:
     0.99.80-5.1 0
         500 ftp://ftp.jp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy/main i386 Packages

Hmm. I think I'll run synaptic with LANG set to English now.

No errors this time. Maybe there were mirrors synchronization issues.
