Snap! Jim that's exactly the repository I added.  WARNING to all others:
Don't add Dags sources to your repo list!!  I've removed the repos in
question and re-run apt-get update a couple of times, but I still get
the same problem with Apt wanting to take out lots of good packages.
Anyone got pointers to the Apt config file to edit/delete/recreate to
stop it misbehaving?

Specifically, I can download and install individual packages okay, but
not do a dist-upgrade with Apt.

BTW:  What repo should I add to get mplayer and its utilities/codecs?
The existing repos that come with k12ltsp don't seem to know about it.
I don't want to add anymore errant repos after my recent experience. 

Regards, Gavin.
