This may mean you need to run:
# apt-get update
# apt-get upgrade
I have seen similar errors when my local copies of Package files get out of date with respect to the repository.
Ok, that makes sense from what I've been reading. I've not re-compiled my kernel before , and so far failing at the first stage. when I try to get
thinking:/# apt-get install kernel-source-2.6.16
Reading package lists... Done

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
E: Couldn't find package kernel-source-2.6.16
do I need to add something to my sources.list??

I use the PPTP VPN via the MPPE kernel module all the time to login to
work. I've recompiled my 2.6.15 kernel, but I'm pretty sure I just
installed the Debian source packages.
Via apt-show-versions, I see I've got the following installed:
linux-source-2.6.15/etch uptodate 2.6.15-8
linux-patch-debian-2.6.15 /etch uptodate 2.6.15-8
linux-image-184.108.40.2066.04.19 220.127.116.116.04.19-10.00.Custom installed:
No available version in archive
(that last one is my recompiled 2.6.15 kernel from the previous source
What I guess I don't know is whether the Debian binary kernels have the
MPPE compiled in or not. But if you were going to compile your own
kernel anyway, I know that you don't need to apply any special patches
to get MPPE working if you're using the Debian Linux source packages.
There is no reason ever to have the same thought twice, unless you like
having that thought. -- David Allen
