Karl, that's plainly what you did /not/ do.  If you read back over
your previous post that will become clear. (just read your own commands
which were:
<sudo aptitude upgrade>, <sudo aptitude upgrade>  and 
<sudo aptitude safe-upgrade> )

 You are obviously confusing the terms, "update," and,
"upgrade.' It is right there in your copied/pasted text.  Twice for,
"upgrade," once for, "safe-upgrade," but not one time for, "update."

This is also supported by your own response to Mark wherein you said,
> Yes my bad. I see from my recorded first effort I did first update

BTW, the 'update' suggestion was mine, not Mark's.  Check the headers.

At any rate, I'm glad that <sudo aptitude update> finally up/dated/
your package information and you can get on with your sudo aptitude
safe-upgrade> to upgrade your installation.
