Robert >>> I tried locking the package, but to no avail.  I notice that 
when the update is supposedly being installed, the 'details' screen reports

Unpacking replacement libpath-class-perl ...
Setting up libpath-class-perl (0.15-1) ...

and then it stops.  Synaptic reports that the update is installed;  but 
the package name stays in the list of items for update;  and the update 
icon on the menu bar does not disappear.

Very curious.
