Just a follow-up on my upgrade problem:

I usually download first all debs before upgrading using,

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -d

With the texlive-latex-base_2007-10_all.deb problem, the download
process doesn't entirely complete.  After a few days, I tried the same
process to continue whats left to download (usually it's the
texlive-latex-base_2007-10_all.deb), however, apt-get seems to
download again all the other packages!  AFAIK, I never cleared my deb
cache.  Is there an expiry to the previously downloaded packages?
