Good lesson for waiting for packages to synchronize before doing an upgrade. Not all packages are put in the repositories in a timely manner. A short wait and things 'jell'.

Open Synaptic. Enable the mepiscr and/or the mepiscr test repositories. Reload. Then in the lower left corner of the main Synaptic window click the Origin button. Highlight the mepiscr (or the testing one). Only the programs in that repository are displayed. You can also disable all other repositori...

It has to be a configuration that you've changed since there have been no problems noted elsewhere.

I've decided that Ext2 is all that's needed for my USB attached storage. I do still have one of my External HDD's formatted Ext3 but occasionally I have 'hiccups' using it. The other External HDD is Ext2 and most of my USB FlashDrives are Ext2. I keep one 16 GB drive formatted NTFS for those occasio...

A word of caution about the mepiscr repository. Enable it only for installing a specific program that you feel you need, for features etc. Then disable it. Do not do a general upgrade with it enabled. That goes for the deb-multimedia repository also.
