apt-get dist-upgrade not possible
« on: 2014/05/19, 10:57:38 »

When I try to apt-get dist-upgrade I get the following output:

Code: [Select]
$ apt-get dist-upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Failed
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 modemmanager : Breaks: network-manager (< but is to be installed
 plasma-nm : Depends: network-manager (>= but is to be installed
 ppp : Breaks: network-manager (< but is to be installed
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
E: Internal error, Upgrade broke stuff

Has anyone an idea how to fix this?

EDIT: replacing german output with english

Just a remark: If posting in EN, please paste Your output in EN as well. Putting LANG=C in front of your commands outputs EN. Other than that your sources seem somehow broken . Please paste inxi -r

this is probably due to a mirror sync at around 11:00

check if you have siduction's kdenext repository enabled
check if you have any packages on hold
check if there are any packages not completely installed with apt-get install -f

kdenext repository is not enabled. Should I do that?
No package is on hold
apt-get isntall -f gives just:

PPA in Debian is always a risk. Remove the ppa lines and the one for debian security. Then try again.

Is there a transition going on and should I wait?

I saw some old linux-headers packages removed this morning, but had no other issues.  But I don't understand why it pulled your nvidia-driver and nvidia-kernel-dkms packages.  It did not pull mine, which are still installed.  You might want to take a look at that issue -- try reinstalling them and find out what is conflicting.

Code: [Select]
root@imerabox:/# apt-cache policy nvidia-kernel-dkms
  Installed: 337.12-0.siduction.1
  Candidate: 337.12-0.siduction.1
  Version table:
     337.19-1 0
          1 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ experimental/non-free amd64 Packages
 *** 337.12-0.siduction.1 0
        500 http://packages.siduction.org/experimental/ unstable/non-free amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     331.67-2 0
        500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable/non-free amd64 Packages
     331.67-1.siduction.1 0
        500 http://packages.siduction.org/fixes/ unstable/non-free amd64 Packages

Also, your siduction sources don't look like what is recommended.  Here is a better siduction.list, assuming you don't need source packages (you can comment out experimental if you don't want it):

Indeed I needed to reinstall the nvidia drivers.
Also somehow pywwetha was running after the upgrade and didn't let me start nginx because it was binded to port 80. apt-get purge pywwetha fixed it.
