Tried to upgrade to the latest on one of our Lenny (plus needed bits
from backports and Squeeze) and am experiencing the following:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I then did
apt-get install kdebase-data-trinity
and all seemed to work.

I noticed that kgtk-qt3-trinity was being withheld.  I then tried the
following with the following results:

jasiii:/# apt-get install kgtk-qt3-trinity
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer
  kgtk-qt3-trinity kgtk-config-icedove kgtk-config-iceweasel
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  debian-kgtk-trinity kgtk-config-bluefish kgtk-config-eclipse
kgtk-config-gimp kgtk-config-inkscape kgtk-config-kino
kgtk-config-openoffice kgtk-config-opera-qt3
The following packages will be upgraded:
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 9 to remove and 54 not upgraded.
Need to get 82.2kB of archives.
After this operation, 233kB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? n

I'm certainly looking forward to the stable release.  Thanks - John
