Have you tried "apt-get -f install"?
No, and using apt-get rather than aptitude was the right idea:
2.2.1. apt-get / apt-cache vs. aptitude
* apt-get is most suitable for the major system upgrade between releases, etc.
So I did
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get -f install
which got the packages fixed and installed, as verified by subsequent
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
and then I was able to reboot and
$ sudo aptitude update
$ sudo aptitude -s full-upgrade
No packages will be installed, upgraded, or removed.
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
your assistance is appreciated, Tom Roche <Tom_Roche@xxxxxxxxx>
Glad it worked! It's gotten me out of a few jams...
