Why do you think that it's OK to use Debian (sid, no less) sources with
Ubuntu?  And then, why would you think we could fix it.  Debian & Ubuntu
are _largely_ compatible, but if mixing them breaks things, I'm afraid
you're on your own.

Except the ones that are Debian...  My bet is that you've checked
the /etc/apt/sources.list, but not /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*
