I did try some of those already. However, just to be sure, I'll go through 
your list to see if anything interesting comes up. 

I keep running apt-get -f install, and apt keeps finding new things to install 
or uninstall. 

Now I can run a proxy, send and receive email; but I cannot use any direct 
connections. One good thing: the Devuan servers are a lot faster than Debian 
servers. It's probably just due to fewer people using them, but it's nice 
have quicker downloads.
