Nope, this is a virgin disk that has only ever had dapper installed on
it. The source file is all dapper.

Tried the -f install option. That asks to install libc6-i686 and
locales. Saying yes to this gives:

dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/locales_2.3.11_all.deb
trying to overwrite '/usr/share/i18n/locales/en_AU', which is also in
package language-pack-en-base
