Please be patient, many packages are getting removed and replaced by <package><foo>t64 or similar!
So be careful before hitting the key!
Read careful what apt wants to do.

Seit vorsichtig, viele Programme werden gegen neue Versionen ausgetauscht, da eine 64_bit time_t transition im Gange ist.

Also seit Vorsichtig und lest was apt/nala/dpkg da machen möchte!

For me and Xfce4 there have been a lot of complaints about dependency problems but they work as they should. Just the package name has been modified so you get a warning. Other than that business as usual for me.

Not only the names got modified, they are recompiled with some new options regarding that time_t thingie.

Yes, sorry, I just meant the dependent packages still have what they need but with the name change triggers the dependency error issue. As the maintainers catch up this will be resolved.

Really, a long list, that needs some time, I guess.

Wow! a tonne of package removals this morning. Many of them are being replaced with the *t64 variants but it's triggering many more that are not. One being Xorg. I'll wait.

I've been using Debian-unstable for about 25 years now. But this is the most intense transition I've experienced so far.
